Rahat's story

Company "Bai-Tushum and Partners" expresses a sincere appreciation to all social investors from Kiva, who supported Rahat's first loan, which she used as directed and repaid without delays. Rahat started her business of with resale of haberdashery goods in 2004, using a starting capital of only 1,000 som (KGS). Today, Rahat has a good turnover of 30,000 (KGS) som and cash resources of 15,000 som (KGS) to buy merchandise. To further increase her goods turnover, Rahat requested a second loan in the sum of 45,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company. She plans to use the income from the loan to pay for her son's education and to further expand her business.
