A loan helped to buy dairy cows in order to increase her milk sales.


Elmira's story

This lovely lady is Elmira. She is 48 years old, is married, and is raising one son. She has a secondary education. She has been rearing livestock and growing crops since 2010, and this is her family's main source of income. Thanks to Elmira's hard work and her husband's help with the farm, it presently consists of two cows, ten sheep, and a 0.12-hectare irrigated orchard that produces organic apples.

In order to develop her business further, Elmira is requesting support from Kiva in the amount of 200,000 som (KGS), to buy cattle. Her aim in this is to increase the income she makes from selling organic milk. The income generated by the loan will help her expand her farm by boosting her headcount of pedigree cows.
