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

A loan helped to purchase fertilizers to increase her income from a good harvest of organic beans.

Uultay's story

Uultay, 49, is married and has four children. She has completed secondary education, and she works as technical personnel in a school. She has a goal-oriented and responsible character. As a source of additional income for her family, she has worked with livestock and crops since 2002. Thanks to Uultay's tireless work, and the help of her son with the household, she currently has two cows, 10 sheep, and a horse on her farm. She also has a plot of land measuring 1.35 hectares where she grows beans.

In order to further develop her farm, Uultay turned to Bai Tushum Bank for a loan in the amount of 100,000 KGS. This is to buy fertilizers to increase her harvest of organic beans. The income from the loan will help Uultay utilize its intended purpose. In this case, the loan bears its fruit and good results, and it will also create conditions for the further development of her farm and provide a decent life.
