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

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

Chynargul's story

Chynargul is 37 years old, married, and has four children. She has a secondary education and works as a cook in a restaurant. She is familiar with agricultural technology and knows how to invest as directed. Since 1999, she has been involved in animal husbandry as an additional source of income for her family. She also has a garden plot where she grows organic apples and pears.

Thanks to her hard work, her farm currently has 5 cows, 60 sheep, and 4 horses. In order to further develop her farm, Chynargul applied to Bai-Tushum Bank for a loan in the amount of 150,000 KGS to purchase cattle, so that she can increase her income from breeding cattle. With the revenue from the loan, Chynargul plans to invest in her farm and improving her family’s well-being.
