A loan of $1,925 helped a member to purchase goods for her shop.


Kanykei's Group's story

In contemporary Kyrgyzstan, grocery stores, supermarkets and bazaars are mostly accessible in main cities and towns. In small villages and other centers of population, one can get consumer goods only from small shops, which every village has.

Kanykei M., 26, is a member of this group. A year ago she spent her savings on building a small shop for consumer goods by her house in a small town of Toktogul. Every week she buys goods wholesale and sells them to the local population. The starting capital of 20,000 KGS was taken from the salary of her husband, who is a cab driver. Now Kanykei makes 5,000 KGS monthly, but because of the constantly rising costs of groceries, transportation and taxes, Kanykei is not succeeding in covering her costs.

She is applying for a loan in order to cover all her expenses and broaden the assortment in her shop.
