Kiyal's story

Kiyal is applying for her second Kiva loan. Her first loan for 35,000 KGS was paid in full and on time. Kiyal is 36 years old and has two children at home. In 2004, while searching for a source of income for her family, Kiyal started her business selling vegetables with the starting sum of 2,000 som (KGS). Thanks to her perseverance and hard work, she was able to increase her monthly income to 15,000 som (KGS). She doesn't have a large stock of products at this time, which is why she has turned to Bai Tushum and Partners for a loan of 100,000 som (KGS). Kiyal plans on spending part of the proceeds from her loan on building materials to repair her home, and part to pay for her children's education.
