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

A loan helped to buy dairy cows to increase her herd and sales of organic milk.

Gulnar's story

Gulnar is 58 years old, married, and has 3 children. Gulnar has a higher education; she works in a children’s educational center. She knows well agricultural technologies and is able to invest as intended. As additional income for her family, she has been breeding livestock since 1992. Thanks to her hard work, Gulnar currently has 5 cows, 30 sheep, a horse, and 4.2 hectares of irrigated land on which she grows alfalfa, barley, and potatoes. To further develop her farm, Gulnar applied for a loan of 100,000 KGS to purchase dairy cows in order to increase the volume of milk for sale. Gulnar plans to invest the income from the loan in the further development of her farm, to build a barn for livestock, and to make major repairs to the house.
