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

A loan helped to buy cattle to increase her income from cattle breeding.

Asel's story

Asel is 31 years old, married, and has three children. She has a secondary education. She is helpful and charitable by nature. For seven years, she has been involved in raising livestock and growing crops as the primary source of income for her family. Thanks to her hard work, her farm currently has 2 horses, 10 sheep, and a land allotment measuring 0.4 hectares where she grows alfalfa.

In order to further develop her business, she applied to Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of 45,000 KGS to buy cattle and increase her income from breeding them. She plans to invest the income from the loan in expanding her farm.
