Arzikan's Group's story

Arzikan is the treasurer of this group. She is 46 and unfortunately, she is a widow. She has two sons and four daughters. Two younger daughters live with their mom and the other children went to work in Russia. In order to earn additional money for her livelihood, Arzikan cultivates agricultural products. She grows sunflowers, corn and rice. Selling some part of the harvest, she earns about 3,000 soms per month. Arzikan applied for the loan because she needs money to purchase a door and window frames to repair her house. In the future, she wants to see that all her children are married.
