Mahabat's Group's story

Mahabat is the treasurer of this group. She is 41 years old and married to a farmer. Together with her husband she is bringing up two daughters and a son, all of whom study at school. Four years ago with an initial investment of 12000 KGS Mahabat started to sell stationery. At the moment her business runs well, and she earns about $113 per month. This profit made it possible for her to pay for her son’s education in Bishkek (capital of Kyrgyzstan). With money received from the loan, Mahabat wants to increase the commodity turnover of her business. In the near future, with money gained from the trade, she wants to start repairing her house. --- Where Did This Loan Come From? --- This loan is brought to you by Mol Bulak Finance (MBF), a young, ambitious and socially-focused Microfinance Institution in Kyrgyzstan.
