Janylkan A. is a resident of Tup, a nice town in Isykul region with a population of 15,000 people. She is a 52-year-old widow who has raised six sons and a daughter. Her three older sons are married and live separately with their families in Bishkek and the other children live with their mom.
Janylkan started her own business in 1994 - at that time she was selling food in the market. Then she saved some money and started to sell clothes. When the children are free they help their mom with her activity.
Janylkan hopes to obtain the loan because she needs money to purchase school uniforms in order to sell them in autumn, when the school season begins. Also, she will use a part of the loan to purchase convenience goods: five bags of sugar and five bags of macaroni in order to resell them at a higher price in the market.
In the future, Janylkan wants to expand her business, improve her family’s living conditions and have enough money to support her children in the future.
