A loan helped to buy seeds and fertiliser in order to grow organic beans.

Soltanat's story

Soltanat, 67, is a widow and has 5 children. She has a secondary education. By nature, she is a hardworking, honest, determined and cheerful woman.

She has been engaged in animal husbandry and field crop cultivation for more than 20 years as the main income for her family. Thanks to her work, her farm now has 2 cows, 20 sheep and 4.0 hectares of irrigated land on which she grows beans.

In order to further develop field crop cultivation, she has applied to Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of 120,000 som (KGS) for the purchase of fertilisers and seeds, in order to increase income from locally grown organic beans.

She plans to invest the income from the loan in livestock, and also partly to improve the wellbeing of her family.
