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

A loan helped to buy bales of hay for cattle and to buy cattle to increase her income from breeding cattle.

Aitunuk's story

Aitunuk is 29 years old, married, and has 3 children. She has a higher education, and she works as a school teacher in the local school. She knows the technology of running an agricultural business and is able to use funds appropriately.

As an additional source of income for her family she has been working with livestock since 2000. Thanks to her hard work, her farm today has 2 cows, 34 sheep, and 6 horses. In order to further develop her farm, Aitunuk applied to the bank "Bai-Tushum" for a loan in the amount of 200,000 som (KGS) to buy hay and to buy cattle, with the goal of increasing her income from cattle breeding. She plans to invest the proceeds into the further development of the farm and with the extra income will make home repairs.
