Shaiymbubu's Group's story

Shaiymbubu is the leader of this group. She is 58 and, unfortunately, she is a widow. She has raised two daughters and a son; the first daughter works as a confectioner, the second daughter is a teacher and the son is a constructor. In order to earn money to meet daily needs, Shaiymbubu Kyrgyz sews national carpets, cloth and dressmaking supplies. She started this activity 10 years ago with an initial investment of 1,000 soms, and, at the moment, her monthly profit from this activity is 5,000 soms. This profit made her able to save money for purchasing an apartment in Balykchi for her daughter.

Shaiymbubu applied for the loan because she needs financial funds to purchase raw materials, which are needed for sewing. In the future, with the profits gained from the business, she wants to save money to purchase a vehicle for her son.
