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

A loan helped to buy livestock and increase her livestock headcount.

Chynara's story

Chynara has successfully repaid her prior loan, and is very grateful to Kiva and to all who helped her with that financing. Chynara's farm presently consists of three cows, three sheep, and a horse. She also has a 0,3-hectare plot of land on which she grows pepper plants.

In order to develop her business further, Chynara has again turned to Bai Tushum Bank, this time for a loan of 75,000 som (KGS) to buy livestock, her aim being to increase her livestock headcount. Chynara is planning to put the income generated by the loan into buying more livestock, with part of it going to building a new house and purchasing a family vehicle.
