A loan of $2,775 helped to purchase groceries for resale in her shop.

Gulbara's story

Gulbara is 64 years old. Together with her husband, she has five children. Their four daughters had been married off and live separately with their respective families. Their son is not yet married and lives with them. In 2000, using an initial investment of 25,000 KGS, the couple started their business of selling groceries. Owing to Gulbara's ability to successfully expand her business and obtain regular clients, she is currently making 20,000 KGS per month.

Thanks to their hard work, Gulbara and her husband were able to successfully marry off their daughters while advancing their business forward. With the goal of further expanding her business, Gulbara applied for a loan of 135,000 KGS from the microfinance bank of Bai Tushum and Partners. She is planning to use this loan to purchase groceries that she can sell in her shop. Gulbara wants to use the profits from her business on her son's wedding celebration.
