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

A loan helped to buy dairy cows in order to increase the volume of milk she can sell.

Svetlana's story

This wonderful woman is Svetlana. She is 43 and married with one son. She has a high school education and has been working in animal husbandry and agriculture since 1996 as the primary source of income for her family. Thanks to her hard work and help from her husband, she currently has a cow, 20 sheep and two horses on her farm as well as 2.22 hectares of irrigated land where she grows organic beans.

With the goal of further developing her farm, Svetlana is asking Kiva for support of 200,000 KGS to buy livestock to increase her income from raising livestock and selling organic milk. Income from the loan will help her expand her farm by increasing her head count of pedigree dairy cows.
