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

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

Gulsun's story

Gulsun is 53 years old, a widow, and she has 3 children. She has a secondary education. She knows the technology of running an agricultural business and knows how to use funds appropriately.

As the main source of income for her family, she has been working with livestock since 2000, breeding dairy cattle and selling organic milk. Thanks to her hard work, her farm today has 8 cows and 1.8 hectares of land where she grows organic rice.

In order to further develop her farm, Gulsun applied to the bank "Bai-Tushum" for a loan in the amount of 70,000 som (KGS) to buy a dairy cow, with the goal of increasing her income from selling organic milk. She plans to invest the proceeds from the loan into the further development of her farm and to improve her family's welfare.
