A loan helped to buy cattle to increase her income from raising cattle.


Shirinbu's story

Shirinbu is 53 and married with five children. She has a high school education and has been working in animal husbandry since 1999 as the primary source of income for her family. She has a good understanding of the technical aspects of running an agricultural business and knows how to manage a budget. Thanks to her hard work she currently has four cows and eight sheep on her farm.

With the goal of further developing her farm, Shirinbu has approached Bai Tushum Bank for a loan of 100,000 KGS to buy livestock to increase her income from raising livestock. She plans to put income from the loan into further developing her farm and improving her family's well-being.
