Ibodat's story

Ibodat has been selling at a market for over ten years. She sells men's clothing. She obtained her first loan in 2002. Now, Ibodat is a successful entrepreneur. At some point, her son, just like others, went to Russia for work, but things were not going as Ibodat wanted. She decided to obtain a large loan and open another retail outlet for her son at a good market. Currently, they have two retail outlets. Ibodat sells men's clothing accessories, such as hats and undergarments, and her son has more expensive men's clothing and good turnover in business. At the present time, she is very glad that organizations like Kiva exist, and that they helped her and her son to find a good, profitable work. Now, her son can stay near her and with his family.
