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.

This wonderful woman is Marapathan. She is 63 years old, married and has five children. She has a high school education. As a main source of income for her family, she has worked with livestock breeding and field crop cultivation since 1990. Thanks to Marapathan's persistent work, and the help of her husband, her farm currently has 3 cows and 10 sheep. She also has 0.8 hectares of irrigated land, on which she grows organic clover.

With an aim to further develop her business, Marapathan requests a Kiva loan in the amount of 200,000 som (KGS). She will purchase livestock, with an aim to increase her herd and the sale of organic milk. The income from the loan helps her expand her farm through increasing her herd of thoroughbred livestock.
