Mohitobon's story

Mohitobon is 46 years old and the mother of many children. She lives with her husband, three sons and three daughters in the Hamadoni district of Tajikistan. She has a higher education and has been working as a teacher in a local school for the past 20 years. Her husband also works as a teacher in the same school. Mohitobon's two elder sons work in commerce in Dushanbe, one of her daughters is a university student, and the rest of her children are still in school.

Mohitobon wants to start her own cattle fattening and resale business. According to her, the combined salaries that she and her husband make are not sufficient to meet the family's needs. This is why she has decided to also get involved in animal husbandry and cattle resale. Thanks to this business, she wants to normalize her financial situation.
