Damira's story

Damira is 41 years old, she is married and is raising three children. She was born in the village of Bakai-Ata where she now lives with her family.

In 2000 Damira opened her own store in her own home and started her business in retail. At this time her store is one of the popular places which provides groceries and consumer goods for the fellow villagers.

As energetic as she is Damira also plows the land of 3.20 hectares, where she grows beans, potatoes and perennial grasses. Thanks to her hard work and a wide range of business activity she was able to save money for her son's tuition in the medical university.

For the further growth of her business and increase of sales Damira has come to Bai-Tushum and Partners for a loan of 100,000 KGS. She plans to invest the profit into her children's education.
