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

A loan helped to buy clover seeds and cattle, in order to increase her income from breeding livestock.

Zhanyl's story

Zhanyl is 31 years old and married, with three children. She has secondary education. In her nature she is goal-oriented and responsible. As the primary source of income for her family, she has been practicing animal husbandry and plant agriculture for 9 years. Thanks to her steady efforts and the help of her husband, Zhanyl's farm currently has 19 cows, 150 sheep, and 5 horses. She also has a plot of land measuring 2.0 hectares on which she cultivates barley and clover. With the aim of further developing her farm, Zhanyl has turned to Bai Tushum bank for a loan in the amount of 70,000 somoni (KGS). This will be used to purchase clover seeds, in order to increase her harvest. She will also spend a portion on the purchase of cattle, with the goal of increasing her livestock headcount. The profits from the loan will help Zhanyl increase her income from operating a farm, and will also help her buy a home.
