Meerim'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.

Meerim's story

This wonderful young woman is named Meerim, and she is 30 years old, married, and raising 4 children. She has a secondary education. As the main source of income for her family she has been working with agriculture and livestock since 2010. Thanks to Meerim's hard work and the hep of her husband on the farm, her farm today has 4 cows, 20 sheep, 2 horses, and 4.9 hectares of irrigated land where she grows organic clovers and beans.

In order to further develop her farm, she is asking for support from the Kiva foundation in the sum of 100,000 som (KGS) to buy dairy cattle with the goal of increasing her income from raising livestock and sales of organic milk. Proceeds from the loan will help her to expand her farm by increasing the size of her herd of pedigreed dairy cattle.
