Irina'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 income from breeding cattle.

Irina's story

Irena is 41 years old, married and has 3 children. She has a secondary education. She is characteristically kind and responsive. As the main source of income for her family she has been engaged in cattle breeding for the last 20 years.

Thanks to her ongoing hard work, on her farm there are now 5 cows, 30 sheep, 4 horses and a plot of land measuring 4.0ha on which she grows clover.

With the aim of further developing her business, she has applied to Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of 150,000 KGS to buy more cattle to increase her income from cattle breeding. She plans to invest profits from the loan into the expansion of the farm.
