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

A loan helped to pay for harvesting to increase her income from organic beans.

Elida's story

Elida, 41, is married and has four children. She has completed secondary education, and she has a goal-oriented and responsible character. As a source of primary income for her family, she has worked in animal husbandry and agriculture for 20 years. Thanks to Elida's tireless work on her farm, she currently has two cows, 20 sheep, two horses, and a plot of land measuring 3.35 hectares where she grows beans.

In order to further develop her farm, Elida turned to Bai Tushum Bank for a loan in the amount of 100,000 KGS to harvest organic beans. Elida plans to use the income from the loan to install a roof on the barn.
