The pretty woman in the photo is Shahzoda. She is 46 years old. She is the mother of two children and a faithful wife. Her husband is working abroad. Her son is also out of the country. She lives in the city of Dushanbe with her daughter. Her daughter is studying at the university. Shahzoda is a housewife and most her time she spends alone at home. Therefore, Shahzoda decided not to just sit around, and she opened a grocery store near her house. She built a small room, and the only thing left is to finish the interior and to buy food. She doesn't have enough money to make repairs and buy goods. Shahzoda believes that people will patronize her shop, and it will not only give her something to do, but will also allow her to contribute to the family budget.

Ее дочь учится в университете. Шахзода домохозяйка и большую часть времени она проводит дома одна. Поэтому Шахзода решила не сидеть без дел и открыть возле дома продуктовый магазин. Она построила маленькое помещение, только осталось провести внутренний ремонт в помещение и закупить пищевые продукты. На ремонт и на товары у нее не хватает средств. Шахзода верит, что ее подержат и она найдет применение своему свободному времени, а также будет приносить свой вклад в бюджет семьи.
