Rahima is 65 years old. Her husband suddenly passed away. Rahima gave birth to and raised three children. Currently, her youngest son lives with Rahima. Her oldest son is married and so is her daughter. Rahima has a secondary education. She got married after finishing school. After the breakup of a collective farm, she got her plot of land and got involved in farming and animal husbandry. She has been involved in business for a long time - about 20 years. She started her business with 60,000 KGS. Currently, the family continues to be involved in farming and animal husbandry and have one cow. Selling milk from home is Rahima's secondary source of income. The family's monthly income amounts to about 10,000 KGS. Rahima is a very active and hardworking person. Following her husband's death and being left alone with all problems, Rahima was able to live through it all, thanks to her sense of purpose and calmness. Rahima requested a loan in the amount of 100,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company to buy livestock. She plans to buy three cows. In the future, Rahima plans to increase livestock headcount and improve living conditions. Her goal in life is to marry off her son and raise grandchildren.
