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

A loan helped to buy dairy cows to increase sales of organic milk and income from breeding livestock.

Ainagul's story

Ainagul is 59 years old, widowed, and has one daughter and one son. She is hardworking, ambitious, and enterprising. She is well versed in running a farming business, and is able to invest funds as necessary. Since 1979 she has been engaged in animal husbandry for her family's main source of income. Thanks to her persistent hard work and responsible approach to the business, she has managed to expand her farm to have three cows and 1.4 hectares of irrigated land, on which she grows peppers.

In order to further develop her farm, Ainagul has applied to Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of 102,000 som (KGS) to purchase dairy cows, in order to increase her sales of organic milk and income from breeding livestock. Ainagul intends to use the funds from the loan to further develop her farm by buying dairy cows, and also build a big new house.
