Nurzhan's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy calves to increase her income from raising cattle.

Nurzhan's story

Nurzhan is 61 and a widow, and a heroine-mother of six children. She has a high school education and has a job as a technical worker. She is a kind and responsive person. She also has been working in animal husbandry and agriculture for the past 28 years as an additional source of income. Thanks to her hard work she currently has four cows and seven horses on her farm.

With the goal of further developing her business, Nurzhan has approached Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of 200,000 KGS to buy calves to increase her income from animal husbandry. She plans to put income from the loan into further expanding her farm.
