A loan helped to buy dairy cows in order to increase her milk sales volume.

Sabira's story

This marvelous woman is Sabira. She is 46 years old and is married. Her children are all grown. She has a secondary education and is outgoing and kindhearted by nature. Sabira has been raising livestock and growing crops, as her family's main source of income, since 2006. Thanks to Sabira's hard work and her husband's help around the farm, it presently consists of four cows, 10 sheep, and a 0.5-hectare plot of land on which she grows organic beans.

Sabira has a contract to deliver organic milk to a local plant, where it is processed into dairy products. This permits her to put money back into her business on an ongoing basis. After learning that she could obtain a loan from Bai Tushum Bank, using as collateral the contract for future deliveries under a Value-Added-Chain arrangement, Sabira has applied for a loan of 200,000 som (KGS) to buy dairy cows. Her goal in this is to increase her milk sales. The dairy plant's payments for the milk will be deposited directly into Sabira's bank account, and the loan payments will be automatically deducted. The income generated by this loan will allow her to develop her farm going forward.
