Aigul's Group's story

Aigul is the leader of this group. She is 37 and married to a welder. Together they bring up a daughter, who is 13 and studies at school. Two years ago, with an initial investment of 5000 soms, Aigul purchased socks and started to sell in the Dordoi market (Dordoi is one of the biggest markets in Central Asia). In this way, she earns 8,000 soms per month. This profit made it possible to improve the family’s living conditions. With money received from this loan, Aigul wants to purchase a variety of clothes for resale. In the future she wishes to expand her business and provide her daughter with a good education.
