Apizakhon's story

Apizakhon is 37 years old, married and raising four children. In search of a source of income for her family, she started her own business in sales of confectionery goods in 2009. Thanks to Apizakhon's persistence and hard work, having started with a sum of 40,000 som, she was able to develop her business to have a monthly income of 15,000 som (KGS). Her husband helps her with the business in his time free from working as a taxi driver. In order to further develop her business, Apizakhon requested a loan in the amount of 120,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company to expand her product selection by purchasing cookies and candy, both locally-made and from the neighboring Kazakhstan. She plans to invest the earnings from the loan into expanding her business in order to pay for her oldest son's education contract.
