Makhbuba's story

Makhbuba is 40 years old and is raising a school-age son by herself. In search of a source of income for her family, she started her own business of selling food products in 2007. Thanks to her persistence and hard work, Makhbuba was able to grow her business, which was started with a sum of only 500 som (KGS), to have a monthly income of 15,000 som (KGS). In order to further develop her business, she requested a loan in the sum of 50,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company to expand her product selection. Makhbuba plans to invest the profit from the loan into expanding her retail space and purchasing her own house in the future.
