Almagul's story

Almagul successfully paid off her earlier loan, she is very grateful to the Kiva foundation and to everybody who helped her with her financing. Her farm today has 6 cows, 20 sheep, and 8 horses. She also has a land share of 4.77 hectares of land, where she grows wheat, barley, and alfalfa.

In order to further develop her farm, Almagul once again applied to the bank "Bai-Tushum" for a loan in the amount of 200,000 som (KGS) to buy bull calves, to increase her income from livestock breeding. She plans to invest the proceeds from the loan into the further development of her farm by increasing the size of her herd, ane one part will be used to improve her family's living conditions.
