Mirkiyaz's story

Mirkiyaz is 59 years old, married and raised three sons. Having a higher education, Mirkiyaz spent over 20 years working as a dispatcher for the Distribution Power Plant in the Aksy village, and he is known as a responsible and goal-oriented person. In order to find an additional source of income for his family that grew due to grandchildren, Mirkiyaz decided to start a business of selling dried plums in 2009. This is considered to be a profitable business for the local residents. Mirkiyaz treated his business carefully and with much responsibility, which allowed him to produce over 5 tons of dried fruits (dried plums). In order to further expand his business, Mirkiyaz requested a loan in the sum of 100,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company to buy plums for drying from the local residents. He plans to use the profits from the loan to expand his small business.
