A loan helped to buy dairy cows to increase cattle headcount and sales of organic milk.


Zhamiyla's story

Zhamiyla, 44, is married and has 6 children. She has high school education and is a very hard-working, goal-oriented and enterprising woman by nature. She knows the technology of running a farming business and is able to use resources appropriately.

As a main source of income for her family, Zhamiyla has been engaged in animal husbandry since 1989. Thanks to Zhamiyla's relentless efforts and responsible approach to business, she managed to bring her farm's livestock headcount up to six cows, 20 sheep and four horses. She also owns a plot of land measured 1.52 hectares where she grows beans.

To further develop her farming business, Zhamiyla applied to Bai-Tushum Bank for a loan in the amount of 250,000 som (KGS) to buy diary cows, with the goal of increasing her income from organic milk sales and livestock breeding. Zhamiyla plans to reinvest the profits from the loan into further development of her farm.
