Алиме 46 лет. Она имеет одну дочь, а также является опекуном дочери своей старшей сестры. Будучи единственным кормильцем для детей, в поисках средств к существованию, в 1995 году Алима решает начать собственный бизнес в торговле продуктами повседневного спроса со стартовым капиталом в сумме 2,000 сом (KGS). Сегодня магазин Алимы, приносящий прибыль около 15,000 сом (KGS) в месяц, известен своими умеренными ценами на продукты, а также «самсами» - печеными пирожками с начинкой, которые она делает сама. В целях дальнейшего развития своего бизнеса, Алима обратилась в компанию «Бай – Тушум и Партнеры» за кредитом в сумме 100,000 сом (KGS) для увеличения ассортимента товаров. В будущем, Алима планирует увеличить количество клиентов магазина и повысить доходы от продаж.
