A loan of $850 helped to buy apricot trees.


Tukhta's story

Tukhta was born in an educated and intellectual family. She has worked with selling dry fruits, more precisely dried apricots, for many years. Currently her husband is immigrating to the Russian Federation, and therefore the burden of caring for the three children and the family economy lies on her shoulders. Tukhta has already been buying and selling dried apricots for 12 years. At the start of every year she rents an apricot orchard with many trees. She dries and treats the apricots together with her children and sells them at a high price. Last year, she spent more than half of the income on conducting and organizing weddings for her children. Now she is experiencing some difficulties with funding. Tukhta would like to receive a loan in order to buy apricot trees. She needs the harvest, as she has to feed her children.
