Risalat's Group's story

Risalat is the leader of this group. She is 47 years old and married to a farmer. Together with her husband she has raised three daughters and two sons. Two older daughters are married and they live separately with their families and the other children are students. In 2009, Risalat, with an initial investment of 30,000 soms, started to sell clothing at the market. At the moment her business is doing well and she earns about 15,000 soms per month.
