A special program that combines financial and non-financial services, especially for women working in the agricultural sector
We have developed a special program called «BIKESH», which combines financial and non-financial services, especially for women working in the agricultural sector.
Under the «Bikesh» program, a special series of non-formal educational events for women entrepreneurs in rural areas called «Syrlasu» provides women with a comfortable environment to exchange ideas and experiences and increase their knowledge.
Also, since 2021, the Qoldau-Bikesh Foundation has been established, which provides support to women entrepreneurs, namely clients who have completed the Bikesh financial training program as part of the «Syrlasu» seminars.
Fund for Support of Women Entrepreneurs «Qoldau-Bikesh»
The Fund is engaged in supporting social, cultural, educational, charitable projects aimed at improving the health and well-being of the population through the support of clients of the MFO «Arnur Credit»
Educational program «Syrlasu»
The «Syrlasu» program is aimed at supporting women entrepreneurs in the South Kazakhstan region in developing their business and personal skills. The Sirlasu program is a series of workshops for women entrepreneurs in rural areas. The program explores and discusses important business topics in an informal setting over a cup of coffee. The name «Syrlasu» in translation from Kazakh means «heart to heart». Thanks to the seminars, women received comfortable conditions for communication, discussion of new ideas, exchange of knowledge and experience.

The «Syrlasu» program is carried out in several stages, one topic for each month in four regions (Yasi, Aksu, Shymkent and Saryagash). In 2019, 12 «Syrlasu» seminars were organized: 4 seminars on the topic «Financial Management» in October, 4 seminars on the topic «Taxation» in November and 4 seminars on the topic «Emotion Management” in December.
MFO «Arnur Credit» attracted more than 200 rural women entrepreneurs in the framework of the educational program «Syrlasu» in 2019. At the end of the training program of 6 topics, entrepreneurs received certificates that allow them to receive microcredit on more favorable terms.
In 2020, «Arnur Credit» continues online seminars, expanding the geography of seminars for women entrepreneurs in 4 other regions - in Almaty, Kyzylorda, Zhambyl regions and in the regions of Ordabasy.
