Ellada lives with her family in one of the mountain villages of Kyrgyzstan, the village of At-Bashy, in the north of the country. She is 40 years old and is raising three children.

Ellada raises animals as a source of income for the family. Begun with a sum of 50,000 som (KGS), her farm today is made up of two dairy cows with offspring, ten heads of sheep, and a horse, and brings in around 5,000 som (KGS) a month from the sale of milk and dairy products.
