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

A loan helped to pay for field work to increase her yield of organic potatoes and barley, and to purchase livestock to increase her income from livestock breeding.

Anarkul's story

Anarkul is 56 years old, married and has four children. She has higher education and works as a school teacher. By character, she is purposeful and responsible. As an additional income for her family, she has worked with livestock breeding and field crop cultivation for a period of 25 years. Thanks to Anarkul's persistent work, and the help of her husband, her farm currently has ten cows, three sheep and a plot of land of 1.0 hectares, on which she grows potatoes and barley.

With an aim to further develop her business, Anarkul turned to the bank "Bai Tushum" for a loan in the amount of 100,000 som (KGS) to pay for field work. She aims to increase her harvest of organic potatoes and barley. A part of the loan will also be spent on purchasing livestock, with an aim to increase her herd. Anarkul plans to expand her farm and save money for her son's wedding.
