Tukhtakhon's story

This single woman's name is Tukhtakhon. She is 56 years old. Her husband died, and she is left to raise her children. But she doesn't think of herself as alone, because she has a daughter and grown up son and daughter. For ten years Tukhtakhon helped her son with his activities. He works in the livestock business. But now she wants, on her own, to start a new business in the field of trading fruits and vegetables. Tukhtakhon wants to sell imported fruits (mandarins, bananas, apples, pears, grapes etc.) from the Republic of Kyrgyzstan in the central market of Isfara. But she doesn't have enough cash to purchase the first goods and for this reason she is requesting a loan. Tukhtakhon very much hopes that she will succeed in starting a new business and rise to new economic opportunities.
