A loan helped to build a barn and to buy livestock in order to increase her income from raising livestock.

Damira's story

Damira is 35 and married with two children. She has a higher education and works as a teacher in a kindergarten. She has also been working in animal husbandry since 2009 as an additional source of income for her family. She has a good understanding of the technical aspects of running an agricultural business and knows how to manage a budget. Thanks to her hard work she currently has five cows, 10 sheep and a horse on her farm.

With the goal of further developing her farm, Damira has approached Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of 150,000 KGS to build a barn and to buy livestock, to increase her income from raising livestock. She plans to put income from the loan into further developing her farm, improving her family's well-being and renovating her house.
