This is a kind 54 year old woman from the wonderful little town of Gissar. There is a saying about women like her that "she knows what she wants and goes after it flawlessly." This is true about Robiya. Once she set a goal of opening her own business in animal husbandry. She acted upon her goal and now, 10 years later, she is still raising large cattle. She is always helped by her loving husband, her children and daughters-in-law. She learned how to take care of cattle when she still lived with her parents before she was even married. To this day, she loves being in this line of work. Robiya is requesting a loan in order to increase the size of her herd. She plans to expand her business in the future.
