A loan helped to buy dairy cows in order to increase the volume of milk she can sell.

Mairamkul's story

This wonderful woman is Mairamkul. She is 60 and married with grown children. She has a high school education and is a calm and kindhearted person. She has been working in animal husbandry and agriculture since 1997 as the primary source of income for her family. Thanks to her hard work and help from her husband, she currently has three cows, 15 sheep and a horse on her farm as well as 1.35 hectares of irrigated land where she grows organic alfalfa. She also has a contract to provide organic milk to a local factory for further processing into dairy products. This allows her to constantly invest in her agricultural business.

Having found out that she could receive a loan for future repayment from Bai Tushum Bank within the framework of their "chain of added value" product, she approached them for a loan of 100,000 KGS to buy dairy cows to increase the volume of milk she sells. Payments for the milk from the factory will be directly deposited into her bank account, and loan payments automatically debited. Income from the loan will help her further develop her farm.
