Saida's story

Saida, 29 years old, is unmarried and has no children. She has a higher education. She started a business in 2012 with 25,000 somons. She rented a storefront, opened a barber shop there, and also rents wedding dresses. Thanks to her hard work and patience, Saida was successful and began receiving a monthly profit of 14,000 somons (KGS). In addition, she grows flowers and fir trees, which she sells. In order to further grow her business, Saida has turned to "Bai-Tushum and Partners" Microfinance Bank to request a loan in the amount of 80,000 somons (KGS) for the purchase of wedding dresses and decorations. She also hopes to repair the barber shop. Saida plans to use the income from the loan to invest into further growing her small business, as well as towards making capital repairs to her house.
