Dildakan's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase boxes of bee families to increase income from beekeeping and obtain organic honey.

Dildakan's story

Dildakan, 66, is married and has four children. She has completed higher education, and she works as a teacher. She understands agricultural technologies and knows how to invest funds in this area. As a source of primary income for her family, she has worked in animal husbandry and beekeeping since 2005. Thanks to Dildakan's tireless work on her farm, she currently has 70 sheep and 70 boxes of bee families.

In order to further develop her farm, Dildakan applied for a 130,000 KGS loan from Bai Tushum Bank. This is to purchase boxes of bee families with the goal of increasing income from obtaining organic honey. Dildakan plans to invest the income from the loan in the further development of her farm by increasing her livestock headcount and organic honey production.
