Saltanat's story

Saltanat is 46 years old, married and is raising three children. In 2006, in search of an income source for her family, she started her own business of selling office and household goods, using a sum of 10,000 som (KGS) as an initial capital. Traveling to a market to sell their merchandise, Saltanat and her husband put forth all their efforts to develop this business and achieved success. Today, they have a goods turnover of about 50,000 som (KGS). Currently, the goods selection is limited, and this is why Saltanat requested a loan in the sum of 100,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company. Purchasing merchandise will allow her to expand the goods selection, increase the number of customers and increase sales. Saltanat plans to invest the profits into purchasing a car in order to have an ability to sell her merchandise in remote villages.
