Gulzar's story

Gulzar is 33 years old, married and raising 2 children together with her husband. Gulzar has a secondary education. To provide the primary source of income for her family, she has been involved in selling food products since 2000. Gulzar leases her store space. She already has regular clients, and the average monthly profit amounts to 30,000 som (KGS). Gulzar also has a land plot, where she and her husband grow potatoes. In order to further develop her business, Gulzar requested a loan in the amount of 100,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum" Bank to buy food products to increase the product turnover at her store. Gulkair plans to invest the earnings from the loan into further growing her retail business and saving money to buy her own store space.
