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

A loan helped to buy some calves and sheep to increase her income from livestock breeding.

Chynarkul's story

Chynarkul, 53, is married and has 4 children. She has a high school education, knows agricultural techniques and is good at managing money. Chynarkul has been engaged in livestock breeding since 1990. She has some dairy cows and sells organic milk. Through her hard work, she now owns 8 cows, 30 sheep and a horse.

Planning to expand her business, Chynarkul is requesting a loan from Bai Tushum Bank. She would like to borrow 150,000 KGS to be able to buy some calves and sheep and increase her income from livestock breeding.

She plans to reinvest the profits and improve her family's financial well-being.
