A loan of $1,275 helped a member to purchase stationery.


Cholpon's Group's story

Cholpon U. is the leader of this group. She is 37 and married to a tax inspector. In order to earn money to cover family expenses, Cholpon sells stationery at the market. She started this business a year ago with the initial investment of 20,000 soms. Now she earns 8,000 soms per month. That profit made it possible for her to purchase a computer and furniture for her home. With money received from the loan, she wants to purchase more stationery in order to increase the turnover of her business. In the future, Cholpon plans to purchase a container in order to expand her business activity. Where Did This Loan Come From?
