Zamira's story

Zamira is 47 years old and married. After getting her degree in food services from a junior college, Zamira worked for five years at a wine and spirits distillery located in the town of Karabalta. This is where she met the man who would later become her husband. She got married in 1991. Now Zamira is the mother of three sons; the eldest son, Erkin, is her main helper in everything, and the younger sons are in schools. Five years ago, searching for a source of income for her family, Zamira launched her own business, opening a small grocery store named “Bek,” which is located in the central part of the village of Belovodskoe. After overcoming many challenges, Zamira was able to grow her business, which now brings a monthly income of 20,000 KGS. Thanks to her hard work, Zamira was able to purchase a car for her family. In order to grow her business further, Zamira turned to “Bai Tushum and Partners” for a loan in the amount of 100,000 in order to increase her sales volume and install new display cases. She plans to reinvest her income in further development of her business.
