Atirgul's story

Atirgul is 41 years old; she and her husband have three children. The oldest son is a college student, and the rest are in school. Atirgul's husband helps around the house, and his source of income is his taxi business.

Atirgul's main source of income is a cafe which she opened two years ago with 15,000 KGS. The menu mainly consists of national dishes. Thanks to her hard work, Atirgul was able to develop her business and attract regular customers. She loves her work and enjoys making the food. According to her customers, the food is delicious and there are many choices. In order to further expand her business, Atirgul is applying for a loan in the amount of 100,000 KGS from Bai Tushum and Partners in order to buy additional products for her cafe and to diversify the menu. Atirgul plans to invest any profits resulting from this loan into her business, and wants to save enough money to educate her oldest son, who just started medical school this year in the state university.
