A loan helped repair her house.


Zylaika's story

Zylaika is 53 years old and married, with 3 kids. She has a high school education. She knows the ins and outs of running a farm and knows how to invest funds to achieve a goal. For 33 years now, she has been raising animals as the primary income for her family. In the summer the animals are taken out to pasture, in the winter they're kept in a shed, and the family sells organic milk. Thanks to Zylaika's hard work, her farm currently has 4 cows, 4 sheep, and 0.55 ha irrigated land, where she grows rice and apricots.

In order to improve living conditions, Zylaika has applied for a loan of 200,000 som (KGS) from Bai Tushum Bank to repair her home. Zylaika plans to improve her family's living conditions.
