A loan helped to buy some dairy cows to increase her sales of organic milk.

Zhailoobubu's story

Zhailoobubu, 55, is divorced and lives with her two children. She has a high school education and is a very kind person. Zhailoobubu makes a living from livestock breeding. Through her hard work, she now owns 5 cows, 30 sheep and 4 horses.

Planning to expand her farming business, Zhailoobubu is requesting a loan from Bai Tushum Bank. She would like to borrow 250,000 KGS to buy some dairy cows to increase the sales of organic milk. This would allow Zhailoobubu to increase her income from livestock breeding.

Zhailoobubu plans to reinvest the profits in her farm.
