Svetlana's story

Svetlana is 50 years old, a widow, and has three sons. She has a secondary education, by nature she is hardworking, purposeful and entrepreneurial. She knows agricultural technology well and knows how to invest as intended.

She has been engaged in animal husbandry as the main income for her family since 1991. Thanks to her hard work and responsible approach to business, she was able to develop her farm to three cows. She has 2.25 hectares of irrigated land on which she grows alfalfa and wheat.

To further develop her farm, she applied to Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of Som 150,000 (KGS) for the purchase of dairy cows to increase sales of organic milk and income from livestock raising. She plans to invest income from the loan in the further development of her farm.
