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

A loan helped to buy livestock feed to increase her income from breeding livestock.

Aziya's story

Aziya, age 56, is married and has 4 children. She has a high-school education and she works as a nurse in a hospital. She knows agricultural techniques and is able to invest money for its intended purpose. She has been raising livestock as a supplementary source of income for her family since 1999. Thanks to her tireless work, her farm now has a cow, 12 sheep and 2 horses.
In order to further develop her farm, Aziya has turned to Bai Tushum Bank for a loan in the amount of 50,000 som (KGS) for the purchase of livestock feed, with the aim of increasing revenue from livestock raising. Aziya plans to invest revenue from the loan in the further development of her farm and to improve her family's standard of living.
