Guljuma's Group's story

Guljuma is the treasurer of this group. She is 25 and married to an electrician. Together with her husband she is bringing up two sons, both of whom are preschool age (under seven).

Seven years ago Guljuma, with an initial investment of 50,000 soms, started to sell various goods for house coziness. At the moment her business is running well. She has increased the commodity turnover and her monthly profit is about 25,000 soms.
