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

A loan helped to buy dairy cows to increase her cattle herd and sales of organic milk.

Chynara's story

Chynara, age 31, is married and has 3 daughters and a son. She has a secondary-school education, and is by nature hard-working, motivated and enterprising. She knows agricultural technology and is able to invest money for its intended purpose. She has raised livestock as the main source of income for her family since 2006. Thanks to her tireless work and responsible approach to business, she has been able to grow her farm to include 5 cows and 27 sheep.
For the purpose of further developing her farm, Chynara has turned to Bai Tushum Bank for a loan in the amount of 100,000 som (KGS) to buy dairy cows with the aim of increasing sales of organic milk and income from livestock raising. Chynara plans to use revenue from the loan to further develop her farm by increasing her dairy cattle herd, to improve her family's living conditions and to provide her children with a higher education.
