Gulnara's Group's story

Gulnara I. is the leader of the group. She is 43 and a widow. She has raised two sons and two daughters. Fifteen years ago, Gulnara started to sell fruits and vegetables raised in her own garden. In this way, she makes 9,750 soms per month. That profit made it possible for her to purchase cattle for breeding.

Aikukul T. is the treasurer of the group. She is 47 and married. She has two daughters and two sons. Aikukul is a teacher at school and her husband works in construction.
