A loan helped to buy a dairy cow to increase headcount of cattle and sales of organic milk.

Nargiza's story

Nargiza, 38, is married and has 2 sons. She has completed her secondary education. She is woman of purpose, hardworking, and enterprising. She knows well agricultural technology and how to invest money appropriately.

She has been involved in animal husbandry since 1996 and this has been the main income for her family. Thanks to her persistent work and responsible approach to business, she was able to develop her farm and now has 2 cows, 10 sheep and 1.11 hectares of irrigated land on which she grows beans.

To further develop her farm Nargiza has applied to Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of 50,000 soms (KGS) to buy a dairy cow in order to increase sales of organic milk and income from livestock raising.

Nargiza plans to invest income from the loan in the further development of her farm.
