Gulnura's story

Gulnura is 51 years old, married and has four children. She has higher education and works at the federal state statistics services as a manager. Gulnara knows agricultural technology well, and is able to invest money effectively. As an additional source of income for her family, she has worked with livestock breeding since 1991. Thanks to Gulnura's persistent work, her farm currently has four cows, seven sheep and four horses.

With an aim to further develop her business, Gulnura turned to the bank "Bai Tushum" for a loan in the amount of 170,000 som (KGS) to purchase bales of hay for the livestock. She aims to increase her income from livestock breeding. Gulnura plans to invest the income from the loan in further developing her business and in improving her family's well-being.
