Chynara'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 to increase headcount of cattle and sales of organic milk.

Chynara's story

Chynara is 62 years old, married, and has four children. She has a secondary education, and a hardworking, driven, and enterprising character. She is very familiar with agricultural equipment and knows how to spend funds for their intended purpose. She has farmed since 1991 to earn her family's primary income. Thanks to her hard work and responsible business approach, she has been able to grow her farm to 17 sheep and two horses. She produces her own hay and feed, and sells organic milk.

To further develop her farm, Chynara contacted Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of 200,000 KGS to purchase dairy cows to increase her sales of organic milk and income from breeding cattle. She plans to invest the income from the loan in further developing her farm.
