Kulmira's story

Kulmira is 52 years old, married and has three children. In search of an additional source of income for her family, she started her own business of reselling agricultural crops in 2002. Kulmira used an initial sum of 5,000 som (KGS) for the first purchase of potatoes for resale and was able to develop her business to have a working capital of 30,000 som (KGS). The earnings from the business allowed her to purchase a UAZ car to transport potatoes. In order to further grow her business, Kulmira requested a loan in the sum of 100,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company to increase goods turnover. In the near future, she also plans to use the profits from the loan to make repairs to her home and continue to expand her business.
