Umsunai's story

Umsunai is 50 years old, married and has raised two children. In search of a source of income for the family, Umsunai started her business of gardening and animal husbandry in 1992. Further, as Umsunai is a seamstress by education, she works with sewing national clothing, which brings in a small income to the family. Having started with a sum of 5,000 som (KGS) the business currently brings in around 10,000 som (KGS) per month from the sale of handmade products. With an aim to further develop her business, Umsunai turned to the organization "Bai Tushum & Partners" for a loan in the amount of 50,000 som (KGS) for the purchase of fabrics and materials for sewing, to increase the turnover of the business. Umsunai plans to invest the income in further expanding her business.
