but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy seeds and fertilizer to grow organic produce.

Musakerim's story

Musakerim is 63 years old, married, and raising a son. He has a high school education. He has been raising crops and animals since 1995 as the primary income for his family. Thanks to Musakerim's responsible approach and hard work, his farm currently has 3 cows, 10 sheep, and a 2.72-ha land plot where he grows green beans.

In order to further grow his farm, Musakerim has applied for a loan of 69,000 som (KGS) from Bai Tushum Bank to buy fertilizer and seeds to grow organic produce. Musakerim plans to invest the income from the loan into growing his business further.
