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

A loan helped to buy livestock to increase her livestock-breeding income.

Jyldyz's story

This lovely lady is Jyldyz. She's 38 years old, married, and raising four children. She has a secondary education and has been keeping livestock and growing crops since 2000; this is her family's main source of income. Thanks to her hard work and her husband's help with the farm, it presently consists of 10 cows, 160 sheep, 13 horses, and a 1.29-hectare plot of irrigated land on which she grows organic clover.

In order to develop her business further, Jyldyz is seeking support from Kiva in the amount of 200,000 som (KGS) to buy livestock. Her aim in this is to increase her livestock-breeding income. The income generated by the loan will help her farm expand by increasing its headcount of pedigree dairy cows and help her buy a new family home.
