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

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

Gulzat's story

Gulzat is 38 years old, married, and has a son. She has a secondary education. She is hardworking, motivated, and entrepreneurial. She is very familiar with agricultural technology and knows how to invest as needed. Since 2009, she has been involved in animal husbandry as the primary source of income for her family.

Thanks to her hard work and commitment to her business, she was able to develop her own farm with a cow, 18 sheep, horses, and 2.4 hectares of land where she grows organic beans. In order to further develop her farm, Gulzat applied to Bai-Tushum Bank for a loan in the amount of 100,000 KGS to purchase dairy cows so she can increase her sales of organic milk and her income from cattle breeding. Gulzat plans to invest the revenue from the loan in the further development of her farm through the purchase of dairy cows and in her children’s education.
