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

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

Aytmukhambet's story

Aytmukhambet is 27 years old, married, and has two sons and a daughter. He has a higher education and works as a loan specialist in a local bank. He is involved in animal husbandry as an additional source of income for his family. Having started in 2007, Aytmukhambet’s farm now has three cows thanks to his hard work and his spouse’s help with the farm.

In order to further develop his farm, Aytmukhambet applied to Bai-Tushum Bank for a loan in the amount of 69,000 KGS to purchase a dairy cow so he can increase his revenue from selling organic milk. The revenue from the loan will help Aytmukhambet to increase his headcount of cattle, improve his family’s material well-being, and build a bathhouse.
