Anarkhan's story

Anarkhan is a 43-year-old married woman, who just had her fourth child. In 2008, Anarkhan, an income provider in her family, started her own small grocery business with a sum of only 15,000 som. Thanks to her persistent work, she was able to purchase a space for the business and to find the necessary equipment. Anarkhan is busy taking care of their new child now, so, her husband is now helping her with the store and the care of their other children.

The monthly income from Anarkhan's business is around 10,000 som. With the goal of long-term business development, Anarkhan has requested a 110,000 som loan from "Bai-Tushum and Partners". She wants this loan to diversify her product selection. Specifically, she would like to purchase tea, sugar, flour, and consumer goods for the home. Anarkhan plans to use the return from this loan to invest in her business, which will ultimately help her save for her son's university education.
