A loan helped to purchase fertilizer for soil treatment to grow organic beans.

Gulmira's story

Gulmira is 53 years old, married and has 3 children. She has a high school education and has been involved in agriculture starting 20 years ago. Thanks to Gulmira's hard work, her farm today has: 2 cows, 5 horses and 4.0 hectares of irrigated land on which she grows beans.

To further develop her farm, Gulmira has turned to Bai-Tushum Bank for a loan in the amount of 200,000 som (KGS) to purchase fertilizer to grow organic beans. With the income from the loan, Gulmira plans to invest in further growing her business, as well as buying livestock and building them a shed.
