Almakhan's story

Almakhan is 50 years old, a widow and has three children. She has been involved in selling women's clothing for 13 years, having started this business with a sum of 5,000 som (KGS). Thanks to her drive and careful work, Almakhan successfully increased the size of her small business, and her monthly profit now amounts to 6,000 som (KGS). Almakhan is very friendly and happy, and also very kind, which allows her to have good opportunities in selling clothing to customers. In order to further develop her business and increasing profit, Almakhan requested a loan in the amount of 70,000 som (KGS) from the Microfinance Bank "Bai-Tushum and Partners" to expand her sales. Almakhan wants to use the earnings from the loan to educate her children and to make repairs at home.
