Cholpon's story

Cholpon is 36 years old, not married, and has two children (one son and one daughter). Cholpon divorced from her husband after the birth of the children. Her neighbors describe her as an accurate, demanding and responsible woman. She has secondary education. In search of income for her small family, Cholpon has worked in private business since 1983. She rents a small cafe with a pool table. She started this business with 10,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Cholpon's persistent work, she was able to develop her business. It brings in around 15,000 som (KGS) per month, which serves as the basis for covering food and household expenses for the family. The income from the business allowed Cholpon to expand her business and attract many customers. With an aim to further develop her business, Cholpon turned to the microfinance bank "Bai Tushum & Partners" for a loan in the amount of 100,000 som (KGS) for the purchase of products for her cafe. The income from the loan helps Cholpon develop her business, and also the income received helps prepare a dowry for her daughter's wedding.
