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

A loan helped to buy calves in order to increase her income from cattle breeding.

Syrga's story

Syrga is 49 years old, married, and has a secondary education. She knows the technology of agricultural activities and is able to invest as directed. Since 2008, she has been working in animal husbandry as the main source of income for her family.

Thanks to her hard work, her farm currently has 12 cows, 103 sheep, 2 horses, and 0.77 hectares of irrigated land on which she grows corn. In order to further develop her farm, she applied to Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of 170,00 KGS for the purchase of calves. It is to increase her income from cattle breeding. Syrga plans to use proceeds from the loan to further develop her farm through the increase of livestock.
