Ainagul's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped To purchase bulls for fattening and reselling and cows for increasing the volume of milk to sell, and to harvest crops.
Ainagul is 64 years old, a widow, and the mother of four children. Ainagul has secondary education. As a main source of income for her family, she has worked with livestock breeding for a period of 37 years. Thanks to Ainagul's purposefulness and hard work, she currently has two dairy cows, one calf and two bulls on her farm. During the season Ainagul also works with field crop cultivation on her own plot of land of 5.20 hectares. Ainagul grows clover and sweet cord. Ainagul's monthly income is around 6,000 som (KGS). This is unfortunately not enough to cover living costs. Therefore Ainagul turned to the bank "Bai Tushum" for a loan in the amount of 150,000 som (KGS) with an aim to develop her livestock breeding business, specifically to purchase bulls and cows. Ainagul also plans to use part of the money on harvesting her crops. Ainagul intends to resell the cattle at the local livestock market. She will direct the income from the loan to further increasing the number of livestock, which leads to a larger income and improved living conditions.
