A loan helped to purchase calves to increase her income from cattle breeding.

Aizada's story

Aizada is 40 years old, married and the mother of 5 children. She has higher education and for 11 years has been involved with raising cattle. Having managed to develop her business and thanks to her perseverance and determination, Aizada has on her farm today 9 cows and 1.0 hectares of irrigated land on which she grows corn.

Aizada looks after the herd herself, holding them in sheds in the winter and putting them out to pasture in the summer. Feed and hay harvest themselves, with 1 hectare of corn grown. Aizada wants to continue to increase her business so has turned to Bai-Tushum Bank for a loan of 200,000 som (KGS) and with the funds will acquire calves for cattle breeding. With the income from the loan, Aizada wants to further develop her business.
