Tamara Urmanbetova Group's story

Tamara U. is the leader of this group. She is a 49-year-old widow who is a resident of Bokonbaevo, a nice village on the south coast of Isykul lake. She has two children who attend school.

Four years ago, with the initial investment of 5,000 KGS, Tamara opened a kiosk near the hospital to sell convenience goods. She currently earns 6,000 KGS per month. With the money from her loan, Tamara will purchase goods for her store to increase turnover and expand her business. In the future, Tamara wants to purchase a vehicle in to decrease her transportation expenses.
