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

A loan helped to buy livestock to increase her livestock-breeding income.

Nargul's story

The 45-year-old Nargul is married, with three children. She has a secondary education, is well familiar with agricultural techniques, and knows how to use resources for their intended purpose. She has been raising livestock since 1995, and this is her family's main source of income. Thanks to Nargul's hard work, her farm presently consists of five cows, ten sheep, a horse, and a 0.23-hectare plum orchard.

In order to develop her business further, Nargul has applied to Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of 100,000 som (KGS), with which she will buy livestock. Her aim in this is to increase her livestock-breeding income. Nargul is planning to put the income generated by the loan toward the further development of her farm and the purchase of a vehicle.
