Maripat is 59 years old, a widow and raised two children. In search of a source of income for her family, she started her own business in sales with an initial sum of 6,000 som (KGS). Thanks to persistence and hard work, Maripat was able to grow her business to have a monthly income of 25,000 som (KGS). Today, her merchandise selection is limited, and this is why Maripat requested a loan in the amount of 125,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company to expand her merchandise selection. She plans to invest the earnings from the loan partially into her youngest son's wedding and partially into developing her business.
