Patila's story

Patila is 48 years old and married. After the fall of the Soviet Union, she began to work in the area of retail of perfume products. She started out as an assistant at the market, later worked as a salesperson, and finally opened her own business. She has successfully developed her business which now brings in monthly earnings of approximately 15,000 Kyrgyzstan Som. In order to expand the range of goods she offers, Patila has approached Bai Tushum & Partners for a loan of 100,000 Som (KGS.) She plans to use part of the income generated by this loan to pay for her son's education, and part to further increase the variety of goods she sells.
