A mother with many children from Kostanay region, who receives addressed social assistance from the state (hereinafter - ASA), managed not only to improve the financial situation of her family, but also to organize her own business. Now a woman makes people beautiful.
Zhanar Kuzhenova rented a small beauty studio on the outskirts of the district center Denisovka for the funds received in the appointment of ASA. Zhanar believes that it is better to have a business than to receive constantly social assistance from the state.
"I have four children. The youngest daughter is 2.5 years old. My husband worked as a builder, his salary was not enough for us, especially since there was no work at all in the winter. So I began to collect documents for the appointment of ASA. Later I learned about the project "Bastau Business" and was trained in the basics of entrepreneurship on short-term courses. On June 26, I was lucky enough to receive a grant to start my own business providing permanent makeup services. I opened a beauty studio "Sen-Sulu". I am very pleased with the warm reviews of villagers, people from neighboring villages Kamyshinskoe, Ayatskoe have known about my studio. Every day I handle about 7-8 clients. After all, every woman at any age wants to be beautiful!"- Zhanar shared her success.
