More Bread, More Jobs

A employee of the Jenishkul Bakery prepares freshly baked bread for packing and distribution to local schools, which purchase 600 of the 5,000 units of bread the bakery produces daily. Though functional before they received a grant in 2009 through the UN Women Program and the Kumtor Operating Company, the grant allowed the bakery to flourish, while also providing employment opportunities for local women.
