Also, Rasiya is engaged in cultivating the land with sugar beets, a profitable activity. Rasiya has applied for a loan of 100,000 KGS to purchase cattle, which will allow her to increase milk product sales. With the revenues, she plans to hold her son’s marriage and give a good dowry for her daughter.
