Cholponay's story

Cholponay is 43 years old and is not married. She has two children. For more than 20 years, Cholponay has been sewing women's clothing as well as costumes for theatrical productions. Her business is currently running at full speed. She primarily takes orders for pieces and has loyal ordering customers. It is a very good business, but most importantly, Cholponay really enjoys doing it. Her sewing business brings her an average monthly income of 9,000 som (KGS). For the purpose of further developing her business, Cholponay turned to Microfinance Bank "Bai Tushum." She is requesting a loan to buy a new, innovative sewing machine and materials for making women's clothing. Cholponay plans to invest the earnings from the loan to increase sales turnover and to improve her home.
