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

A loan helped to purchase young steers to fatten and resell.

Gulbahor's story

Gulbahor is an enterprising village woman of the age of 32. She is a native of the Kulob region. Gulbahor decided to start an animal sales business. For the money sent by her husband, who is in Russia as a migrant worker, she has stocked up with livestock feed and she does not have much money left at all.

With the loan, Gulbahor would like to purchase three steers of good breed. She will keep them in the yard of her house, in a cowshed. She plans to fatten them for a period of 30-35 days, and then resell them at the livestock market for a profitable price. She very much hopes that the Kiva lenders will give her the chance to realize her ambition.
