Now is the time to put in winter crops, and Gulzira is getting ready for planting. She wants to plant potatoes, but first she needs to enrich the soil with mineral fertilizers. She doesn't have the money to buy the amount of fertilizer needed, so she is asking for a loan. She believes that she will have a good harvest, and her labors will not be without reward.
