Shahzoda's story

Shahzoda is 53 years old. She and her husband, son, and daughter live in Temurmalik district. Shahzoda has decided to run a business of buying and selling livestock. What she likes in this business is that she herself will be able to control her own business.

Shahzodaa will care for, feed, and water the cows and bulls. Her husband will help her with transporting hay for the animals. They have their own plot of irrigated land, on which garden crops and livestock feed is grown. Now Shahzoda has a large stock of hay. She is taking a loan in order to buy a pair of cattle and start her business of fattening and reselling livestock.
