Shirinkan's story

Shirinkan is 53 years old, married and has two children. Since 1996 Shirinkan has been selling groceries and she started her business with a small sum of 5,000 som (KGS). Due to her hard work and perseverance the grocery store is now worth 70,000 som (KGS) and profits from the business have helped Shirinkan to purchase a used car. Her husband now uses the car as a taxi cab which brings additional profits to the family. In order to further expand their business Shirinkan has turned to "Bai-Tushum and partners" for a loan of 115,000 som (KGS) which she will use to purchase groceries for resale at her store. Shirinkan is planning to use profits from this venture for financing repairs on her house.
