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

A loan helped to buy 20 sheep, which will increase the income she makes raising livestock.

Saltanat's story

Saltanat paid her loan back successfully, and she is very grateful to Kiva and to everyone who helped finance her. Saltanat's farm currently consists of five cows and eight sheep. In order to further develop her farm, she has once again turned to Bai Tushum Bank for a 100,000 KGS loan to buy 20 sheep so she can increase the income she makes breeding livestock. Saltanat plans on using the income generated by this loan to further develop her animal husbandry business,
