A loan of $1,825 helped to expand the merchandise selection by buying winter clothing.


Talchakan's story

Talchakan is 51 years old and a widow. She lost her job after the breakup of the Soviet Union and, in search of a source of income for her family, became involved in sales of sewn goods, having started this business with a sum of 20,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Talchakan's hard work and persistence, the monthly profit from the business amounts to about 20,000 som (KGS). Despite the business losses during the unrest of 2010, she was able to survive and develop her business. In order to further develop her business, Talchakan requested a loan in the amount of 85,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company to expand the merchandise selection by buying winter clothing. She plans to invest the earnings from the loan into developing her business by increasing goods turnover and wants to help her sister to hold her son's wedding in the future.
