Mihrai's Group's story

Mihrai is the treasurer of this group. She is 41 and married to a baker. Together with her husband she brings up a daughter and a son. The son helps his dad in running the business and the daughter, 7, is going to enter school this year.

Four years ago, with an initial investment of 20,000 soms, Mihrai started to sell women clothing on the market. She earns 10,000 soms per month and this profit made it possible to improve the family’s living conditions. Mihrai applied for the loan because she needs additional financial funds for purchasing more clothes in order to increase the assortment of goods. In the future Mihrai wishes to save money for purchasing a new house.
