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

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

Gulmira's story

Gulmira, 41, is married and has a daughter and a son. She has high school education and works as a technician. She is a hard-working, goal-oriented and entrepreneurial woman. She knows the technology of running a farming business and is able to use funds appropriately.

Since 1996, Gulmira has been earning an additional income for her family through animal husbandry. Thanks to Gulmira's hard work and responsible approach to business, her farm today has two cows, 51 sheep and two horses.

In order to further develop her farm, Gulmira applied to Bai-Tushum Bank for a loan in the amount of 150,000 som (KGS) to buy dairy cows, with the goal of increasing her income from livestock breeding and sales of organic milk. Gulmira plans to invest the proceeds from the loan into further development of her farm through increasing the headcount of dairy cows and renovate her house.
