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

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

Mira's story

Mira is 39 years old, married, and has 4 children. She has a secondary education. She knows well agricultural technologies and is able to invest as intended. As a main income for her family, she has been breeding livestock since 2009. Thanks to her hard work, her farm currently has 5 cows and 0.2 hectares of irrigated land on which she grows plums. To further develop her farm, Mira applied to Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of 80,000 KGS to purchase pedigreed cows in order to increase her income from livestock breeding. She plans to invest the income from the loan in the further development of her farm through the purchase of livestock and a land plot.
