Gulaiym's story

Gulaiym is 48 years old and married. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, she was forced to leave her teaching profession and became involved in the sale of toys, souvenirs and office supplies. With a starting sum of 50,000 som (KGS), she was able to develop her business, earning a monthly income of about 30,000 som. In order to broaden her selection of goods, she has turned to "Bai Tushum & Partners" for a loan of 100,000 som (KGS). Gulaiym is helping her son to build a house for the family, and she is planning to invest her revenues in part to help her son and in part to further increase her selection of goods.
