A loan of $1,725 helps to buy dairy cows in order to increase sales of organic milk and income from breeding livestock.


Gulsun's story

Gulsun is 66 years old, a widow and has grown children. She has a college education and is a hardworking, goal-oriented and entrepreneurial person. She knows the technique of running an agricultural business and can invest money into it appropriately. To provide the primary income for her family, she has been involved in animal husbandry since 1980. Thanks to her hard work and responsible approach to the business, she was able to grow her farm to four cows, 20 sheep and two horses. To continue growing her business, she requested a loan in the amount of 140,000 som (KGS) from the Bai Tushum Bank to buy dairy cows in order to increase sales of organic milk and income from breeding livestock. She plans to use the profit from the loan to further develop her business.
