Asel's story

Asel is 30 years old. In search of a source of income for her family, she started her own business of sewing women's clothing at home in 2009 with an initial sum of 20,000 som (KGS). Thanks to persistence and hard work, Asel's monthly business income amounts to 20,000 som (KGS), and the earnings allowed her to purchase a sewing machine and an iron. In order to further develop her business, Asel requested a loan in the amount of 30,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company to purchase materials and thread. She plans to invest the earnings from the loan into developing her business by purchasing a more advanced sewing machine.
