Rashida is a 50-year-old married woman and has had a business selling milk with her husband for five years. She has two cows and one buffalo and sells their milk to many of their neighbors, along with butter and cheese that they make from the milk. She looks after the buffalo and performs the task of collecting milk from them and selling it to different places on daily basis. She is the mother of five children and needs to earn much more to meet their everyday expenditures, including food, clothing and education.
