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

A loan helped to buy dairy cows in order to increase headcount of cattle and sales of organic milk.

Saliya's story

Saliya is 50 years old, married, and is raising three children. She has a secondary education and is hardworking, purposeful, and enterprising by nature. She knows the technology of agricultural activities and is able to invest as directed.

Since 1994 she has worked in animal husbandry as the main source of income for her family. Thanks to her hard work and responsible approach to business, her farm currently has seven cows and 0.7 hectares of land on which she grows corn.

In order to further develop her farm, she has applied for a loan of 100,000 KGS at Bai Tushum Bank. It is for the purchase of dairy cows in order to increase sales of organic milk and income from cattle breeding. Proceeds from the loan will be used to further develop her farm.
