A loan helped to buy dairy cows to grow her herd and increase organic milk sales.

Surakan's story

Surakan is 59 years old and married with one son. She has a secondary-level education and she is a hardworking, driven and entrepreneurial person. She has a good understanding of agricultural technology and she knows how to invest funds effectively. Surakan has been raising livestock since 1996, and this is her family's primary source of income. Thanks to her hard work and responsible approach to business, she now has 6 cows, 60 sheep and a 2.46-hectare plot of land where she grows beans.

In order to further develop her business, Surakan has approached Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of 250,000 som. She will use the money to buy dairy cows to increase her organic milk sales and her income from raising livestock. Surakan plans to invest the profit from the loan in further developing her business.
