A loan of $600 helped to renovate her stall at the market.

Nataliya's story

Nataliya is 43. She and her husband are raising one son. As the main source of income for her family, Nataliya works selling bread at the local market, a business she started 20 years ago with 5,000 KGS. Nataliya rents her stall, and her selection of breads includes types such as Borodinskiy, Moskovskiy, Podovoy and Krestyanskiy. Thanks to her hard work, Nataliya has been able to grow her small business and attract a regular clientele. Her monthly income is 20,000 KGS.

With the goal of further developing her business, Nataliya has turned to microfinance bank Bai Tushum and Partners for a loan. She plans to renovate her market stall, which will lead to better working conditions as well as increasing the space she has to display goods. She plans to invest profits from the loan into further development of her business, and to save toward her son's education.
