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

A loan helped to buy dairy cows to increase her sales of milk to a local factory.

Mahira's story

Mahira is 54 years old. She's married with 3 children. She has a high school education. She works as a cashier. Her family's main source of income has been raising cattle and growing crops since 1991. Thanks to her hard work, today the farm has 5 cows, 10 sheep, 8 horses, and 1.2 hectares where she grows organic pepper.
Mahira has an agreement with a local factory to sell her organic milk to them for further dairy processing. This enables her to continuously reinvest in her farm.
When Mahira learned that she can get a loan from Bai Tushum Bank backed by her future contract with the factory, she asked for a loan of 130,000 KGS. This helps her buy more dairy cows and increase her sales volume of organic milk.
The payment from the factory will come directly to her bank account, with her loan repayments automatically deducted to Kiva. Earnings from this loan will help Mahira further improve her farm.
