Fatimahon's story

Fatimahon is forty-four, married, and has five children. Two of her daughters are married, and three of the children are in school. For the past ten years, she has been selling clothing at the local market to earn a good living for her family. She started the business with 100,000KGS, and thanks to her own tenacity, the business brings in around 20,000KGS per month, which covers the family's food and household expenses. Because she's a particularly affable proprietor and offers a nice assortment of goods, Fatimahon has a quite a few steady customers, requiring the whole family to take part in the business. These days Fatimahon's daughter helps her out at the market, and her husband offers his support, too.

To further develop her business, Fatimahon has turned to Bai Tushum and Partners for a loan of 100,000KGS in order to purchase merchandise and increase working capital. She plans to use the income from the loan to improve the business so she can build a big home for her family.
