Ulash's story

Ulash is a woman with a kind heart who lives in poverty in the southern part of Tajikistan. She is 50 years old, married and has four children--two daughters and two sons. She has two smart grandchildren that she loves very much. She tries to buy them milk and meat so that they are always well fed. Ulash is hardworking and for more than 30 years has worked in the field growing grains and vegetables. She is happy with her work and isn't deterred by cold weather or Tajikistan's scorching sun. She has a large mountain. Ulash's husband is seriously ill. He needs treatment but since they have not yet had their harvest, they don't have the money. Her husband's health is getting worse and he urgently needs to see a doctor. Ulash is asking for a loan of 2,000 somoni for her husband's treatment. She awaits your kindness and relies on your mercy.
