A loan of $1,325 helped to purchase summer clothes.

Atyrkan's story

Atyrkan lives in Tashkomur, a small mining town in the south of Kyrgyzstan. She is 48 and married to a private entrepreneur. Ten years ago, with an initial investment of 20,000 soms, Atyrkan rented a shop and started to sell clothes, bags, and toys. At the moment her monthly profit is 48,000 soms. With money earned from the business, she repaired the house and started building a café. Atyrkan applied for this loan because she needs additional funds to purchase summer clothes. She hopes that the loan will help increase the turnover of her commodities. In the future, the family plans to celebrate their daughter’s wedding.
