Kuluiza is the leader of this group. She is 50 and married to a farmer. Together they have raised a son and four daughters. The son is married; the first daughter studies at university, she is married too; the second daughter works in Russia and the others are at school. In order to earn money the family breeds cattle and cultivates agricultural products. Kuluiza sells 9-10 liters of milk every day. This activity brings her an additional 3000 soms per month. The family applied for the loan because they need money to purchase 200 kg of potato seeds. In the future Kuluiza hopes to get a good harvest; she also wants to see all her daughters get married.
