A loan helped to purchase pedigreed cows to increase her income from cattle breeding.

Kanymzhan's story

Kanymzhan is 54 years old, married, and has a daughter. She has a secondary education. She knows the technology of running an agricultural business and is able to use funds appropriately. As the main source of income for her family, she has been working with livestock since 1999, she learned to take care of livestock in her young childhood, and now she raises cattle and sells organic milk, as well as working with agriculture, growing organic apples and apricots.

Thanks to her hard work, her farm today has 14 cows, 35 sheep, and 2 horses. In order to further develop her farm, Kanymzhan applied to the bank "Bai-Tushum" for a loan in the amount of 200,000 som (KGS) to buy pedigreed cattle, with the goal of increasing her income from livestock breeding. She plans to invest the proceeds from the loan into the further development of her farm and to fix the house.
