A loan helped to buy a dairy cow to increase the number of cattle and sales of organic milk.

Aizada's story

Aizada is 44 years old, married and has 4 children. She has a university degree and she works as a teacher. By nature, she is a woman of purpose, hardworking and enterprising.

She knows about agricultural technology and how to invest money appropriately. She has been engaged in animal husbandry as an income for her family since 1997. Thanks to her hard work and responsible approach, she has been able to develop her farm to 7 cows, 61 sheep, 2 horses. She also has a 1.09 hectares plot of land where she grows organic potatoes.

In order to expand her farm, Aizada has applied to Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of 60,000 soms (KGS) to buy a dairy cow in order to increase sales of organic milk and the income from livestock raising.

Aizada is planning to invest income from the loan in the further development of her farm by buying more agricultural land, to give her children a good education and expand the farm.
