A loan of $2,450 helped to increase product turnover by buying food products wholesale to be resold at retail prices.


Amina's story

Amina is 66 years old, divorced and raising four children alone. She started a business selling food products at a leased pavillion in 2004, using an initial capital of 5,000 som (KGS). Having been able to grow her business and to obtain regular clients, Amina now has an average monthly income of 7,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Amina's hard work, she was able to increase her product turnover and develop her business. In order to further grow and expand her business, Amina requested a loan in the amount of 120,000 som (KGS) from the microfinance bank "Bai-Tushum and Partners" to increase product turnover by buying food products wholesale to be resold at retail prices at the pavillion. Amina plans to invest the earnings from the loan into the product turnover and save money to purchase a house for her son.
