Buzainap's story

Buzainap T. is a single mother of two children. She lives in Osh city, in the south of Kyrgyzstan. Buzainap graduated from trade college and worked as an accountant, but this work was not very profitable and she was not able to cover all of her children's expenses. In order to find a means of supporting her family, Buzainap started a business selling clothing. Using her initial capital of 5,000 KGS, she rented a sales location at the local market and started her business. Thanks to her hardworking and persistent nature, Buzainap managed to buy a flat for her family and increase her turnover. But in June 2010, when violent clashes caused by a deposed political regime broke out in the city of Osh, Buzainap lost her business, which was robbed and looted.

However, Buzainap doesn’t give up and is ready to resume her lost business and continue to work. For this reason, she is applying for a loan of 50,000 KGS, which she needs to restart her business. She plans to renew her range of goods for the coming winter season. Buzainap is very positive person, who believes in a prosperous future for her family and will do her best to achieve it.
