Kenjegul A. is 39 years old and she lives in Kant with her family, which consists of her husband and their two daughters. All of the family members raise money in different ways. The total sum of family income is $650 per month. Kenjegul’s spouse works as a local taxi driver, and at home he repairs cars. The elder daughter is a hairdresser and the younger one is a student on a budget base at the Medical Academy.
Six years ago the client was the owner of a small shop, and then she changed her line and began to sell industrial goods. Now she is making her money by selling men's socks and women's underwear for all ages in the central local market. Sometimes when she is not able to manage all the workload, the daughters relieve her. In this way they have managed to purchase a house, new furniture and necessary household appliances. During these years they have also been paying for their daughter’s studies.
The family needs a loan in order to buy more goods to sell (33,000 KGS), to do automobile repairs (10,000 KGS) and the remaining 17,000 KGS for study payment.
In the future Kenjegul wants to obtain her own stall in the central market and to buy flats for her daughters.
