As her children grew, so did the costs of their education, and the salary her husband made was insufficient to cover it all, so he decided to leave for Russia to earn more.
For five years Rukhsora has had a small business drying and remaking apricots. Thanks to the quality of her products, she has earned a solid reputation among her customers and the demand for her goods has grown allowing Rukhsora to contribute significantly to the household and education of her son.
Today Rukhsora requests 2500 Somoni ($US750) for the term of 12 months. She is going to spend the loan for purchasing dried apricots with the purpose of processing and reselling. Rukhsora expresses her gratitude to everyone supporting her.
Support this woman of much strength and courage to keep working.
