A loan helped to purchase school uniforms for trade.


Larisa's story

Larisa is the treasurer of this group. She is 46 and married to a pensioner. Together they have raised a daughter who is 22 years old. She studies at the university, and at the same time she works in a sewing workshop.

Nine years ago with an initial investment of 5,000 soms Larisa started to sell children's clothes and hosiery. At this time her business is running well. She purchased a container (used as a retail stall) and improved the family’s living conditions.

Larisa applied for the loan because she needs additional financial funds to purchase school uniforms in order to increase the commodity turnover of her business. In the future she wants to build a house in Bishkek for her family.
