After having a training on "Business Management" in Japan, Nurbubu Sultanbaeva returned her hometown, Karakol, and founded sewing enterprise "Aiko Seiko" whose main business is sewing of protective gears (for oil industry, medical institutions, Ministry of Defense and etc.).
When the COVID-19 pandemic has started, the enterprise decided to dedicate themselves to the production of coronavirus personal protective equipment (PPE) which meet quality standards under Sanitary and Epidemiological Surveillance.
The enterprise operates at full capacity now and 80 staff sew 700 protective suits and 10,000 masks per day. The main customer is the administration of Issyk Kul region and some portion is distributed to other regions, hospitals and block posts.
As Nurbubu says, the main recipe of her success is a priceless experience and knowledge gained in Japan. During her training, besides business management, kaizen and quality control, she learnt about quality self-control - each employee is personally responsible for the quality of own work. Nurbubu is happy and proud that she has been successful in growing her business and finally contributes to the pandemic response for her country.
