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


A loan helped to buy pedigreed cattle to increase her income from raising cattle.


Mahabat's story

Mahabat is 34 and married with two children. She has a high school education and has been working in animal husbandry since 2008 as the primary source of income for her family. She knows all the technical aspects of running an agricultural business and how to manage a budget. She also offers manicure services as an additional source of income. Thanks to her hard work she currently has four cows and 14 sheep on her farm.

With the goal of further developing her farm, Mahabat has approached Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of 100,000 KGS to buy pedigreed cattle to increase her income from raising cattle. She plans to put income from the loan into further developing her farm and improving her family's living conditions.
