Kanayim's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy cattle for fattening and to increase her headcount of cattle.

Kanayim's story

Kanayim is 53 and married with four children. She has a high school education and has been working in animal husbandry since 1984 as the primary source of income for her family. She knows the technical aspects of running an agricultural business and how to manage a budget. Thanks to her hard work, she currently has five cows, 15 sheep and a horse on her farm as well as 1.02 hectares of irrigated land where she grows barley and rice.

With the goal of further developing her farm, Kanayim has approached Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of 150,000 KGS to buy livestock to increase her income from raising and fattening livestock. She plans to put income from the loan into further developing her farm and finishing building her house.
