but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy clothes for sale to expand her shop's inventory.

Roza's story

Roza is 34 years old, married, and has two children. Roza has a higher education. Since 2009 she has earned her family's primary source of income by selling women's clothing. She has her own sales location, and her turnover is 700,000 som (KGS). Roza orders clothing to be delivered from wholesale sellers from the country's wholesale market, then sells it at the local market. Roza is known as a principled, honest, respectable and reliable person. Her monthly income is up to 50,000 som (KGS). To further develop the business Roza came to the Bai-Tushum bank for a 150,000 som (KGS) loan to buy a new collection of clothing. Expanding her inventory will allow her to attract new customers and make her business more profitable, which will allow her to finish building her family's home.
