Rahat's story

Rahat, 56, is a widow. She has a son and a grandson. Rahat has a high school education and is a controller on a collective farm. She knows agricultural techniques and is good at investing money. In addition to her job, she makes a living from cattle breeding. She started out in 2010. Through her hard work, she now owns 3 cows and 6 sheep.

Planning to expand her business, Rahat is requesting a loan from Bai Tushum Bank. She would like to borrow 110,000 KGS to be able to buy some more cattle for fattening and resale. She plans to reinvest the profits and save up for her son's wedding.
