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

A loan helped to buy dairy cow to increase his herd and sales of organic milk.

Bekbolot's story

Bekbolot is 26 years old, married, and has 3 children. He has a secondary education; he works as a taxi driver. As additional income for his family, he rears livestock since 2016. Thanks to Bekbolot’s hard work, and with his wife’s help, his farm today has 3 cows, 8 sheep, and 1 horse. To further develop his farm, Bekbolot applied to Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of 50,000 KGS to purchase a dairy cow in order to increase sales of organic milk and income from livestock breeding. The income from the loan will help Bekbolot buy agricultural land.
