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

A loan helped to purchase three cows to increase her herd.

Uulkelsin's story

Uulkelsin successfully repaid her previous loan. She is very thankful to Kiva, and all those who helped her with the financing. Uulkelsin currently has five cows, 10 sheep and two horses on her farm.

With an aim to further develop her business, Uulkelsin again turned to the bank "Bai Tushum" for a loan in the amount of 130,000 som (KGS) to purchase cows. She aims to increase her income from livestock breeding. The income from the loan helps Uulkelsin to build a new barn and to marry away her son.
