Gulzhan's story

Gulzhan is 45 years old. Her husband is retired. Gulzhan herself works as a house painter. She has a secondary education and has also been involved in animal husbandry for many years. She has been able to grow her business and, thanks to her perseverance and dedication, she has come to the point where she now has four cows as well as an orchard. Gulzhan would like to further expand her business and, with this goal in mind, she has turned to Kiva's partner, Bai Tushum Bank, and requested a loan of 40,000 som (KGS). She will use her loan to buy a dairy cow to increase her cattle headcount and also her production of organic milk. She wants to use the earnings from her loan to further increase the size of her herd, and she would also like to build a house for her family.
