Syrga's story

Syrga is 57 years old, divorced, and the mother of five daughters. She has completed her secondary education and works in retail, selling men's and women's clothes. She got involved in this activity over 10 years ago, starting with an initial capital of 20,000 som (KGS). Today, her business constitutes the main source of income for her family. Thanks to Syrga's very hard work, her inventory is now worth 260,000 som (KGS). She makes a monthly income of 19,000 som (KGS). Eager to further grow her business, Syrga has turned to Bai Tushum Bank and requested a loan of 110,000 som (KGS) to buy clothes for retail sale. She plans to use the earnings from her loan to further expand her activity.
