The project created two jobs for women and three for men so far. Every week, ololohaus serves up to 100 people through various events that support the generation of new ideas, art, socialization, collaboration and the celebration of life.
Co-founders Ainura and Daniyar Amanalievs were surprised by the highly active levels of engagement and dynamic participation they noticed from locals at the first events they launched at ololohaus Osh.
"When we were thinking of expanding our next coworking space in Osh, we were told many times it would be an unsuccessful idea. Because people are in Osh are seen as too passive, conservative or kind of introverted. However, in reality, it turned out to be totally the opposite. People are hungry and open for new knowledge," says Ainura.
"The last Grabli Night (presentations of business failures) confirms it. Even when it finished too late, around 10:30PM, the majority stayed. By the way, 80% of them were women with kids, which sounds almost unreal as Osh was also described as restricting women's participation in social life," continues Daniyar.
