Manasbek's story

Manasbek is 43 years old, married and has three children. Nineteen years ago in search of a source of income for his family Manasbek started his business selling food and basic goods using the sum of 5,000 som (KGS). Manasbek's store is known for good quality products which are sold at a low price, which is important for people with low incomes. Through persistence and hard work Manasbek was able to develop his business with a monthly income of about 20,000 KGS.

In order to further develop his business Manasbek turned to Bai Tushum and Partners for a loan in the amount of 100,000 KGS to expand the product range. Manasbek plans to invest the income from loan in the expansion of retail space.
