A loan of $1,450 helped to buy food for resale.


Gulmira's story

Gulmira is 40 years old, married and has five children (four daughters and a son). She finished high school and has had her own business since 2007 when she started it with 25,000 KGS. She mostly sells food products at a rural market. She receives additional income from a bit of livestock, she owns one dairy cow, and one calf. Her husband and children actively help her with the business. Thanks to her hard work and optimism, Gulmira has a monthly income from her business of around 8,000 KGS. Her profits have allowed her to increase her turn over and, in turn, improve her family's well-being. With the goal of further developing her business, Gulmira has turned to Bai Tushum and Partners for a loan of 70,000 KGS to buy food goods to resale. She plans to use the income from the loan to reinvest in inventory as well as to improve her family's circumstances.
