Rakhat's story

Rakhat is 41 years old, a widow and is raising 5 children. The oldest is a 21-year-old daughter. Since the sudden death of her husband in 2009, Rakhat has worked selling women's clothing. She started her business with 20,000 KGS. Now, thanks to her hard work and strong character, she has many clients. Each month, her income is around 20,000 KGS. In order to further develop her business, she has turned to Bai Tushum and Partners for a loan of 50,000 KGS to buy women's spring and summer clothing. She currently doesn't have the variety or inventory to increase her profits. The loan from Kiva and Bai Tushum will help her. With the new profits, Rakhat plans to pay her daughter's university tuition.
