Darkangul's story

Darkangul is 47 years old. Together with her husband, she has raised five children. In 2008, the couple started a business of selling food products in a rented store. They used a sum of 10,000 som (KGS) in starting capital. After developing their business and acquiring returning customers, Darkangul has an average income of 15,000 som (KGS).

Thanks to their persistent work with the business, the couple was able to purchase livestock to breed, and currently Darkangul has two dairy cows, 20 sheep, one horse and two calves on her farm.

With an aim to further develop her business, Darkangul turned to the microfinance bank "Bai Tushum & Partners" for a loan to purchase food products and beverages wholesale to subsequently sell them as retail goods. Darkangul plans to invest the income from the loan in increasing the turnover.
