Cholpon's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase dairy cows in order to increase the volume of milk she sells.
Cholpon, this wonderful woman, sends greetings from the village of Tyup. She is 53 years old, married, and has 2 adult children. She has a secondary education. As the main income for her family, she has been raising livestock and farming since 1991. Thanks to Cholpon's hard work and with her husband's help with the farm, today her farm has 3 cows, a sheep, and a horse, as well as 1.48 hectares of irrigated land on which she grows organic potatoes, barley, and apples. In order to further develop her farm, she is asking for support from Kiva in the amount of 200,000 KGS to purchase livestock in order to increase her income from selling organic milk. The income from the loan will help her expand the farm by increasing her herd and making home renovations.
