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

A loan helped to purchase livestock to expand her business.

Shamsiya's story

Shamsiya is a 47-year-old resident of the Temurmalik district, where she lives with her husband and sons. She runs an animal husbandry business from her property to earn a living. For the past 10 years, she has been raising cows and steers. She likes this business not only because she receives a stable income, but because she can provide her family with milk and dairy products. Plus, taking care of animals isn't labour-intensive work, and she is able to take care of her household chores at the same time.

Shamsiya's goal for this loan is to develop her business. She wants to buy a pair of steers, since the market price is currently relatively low. Please help her realize her goals. She will use the profits from this business to pay her son's university fees.
