Parida has a secondary education and, to provide the primary source of income for her family, is involved in animal husbandry.

The monthly income from reselling livestock and dairy products amounts to about 10,000 som (KGS). In order to further develop her business, Parida requested a loan in the amount of 50,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum" Bank to buy cows and sheep for increasing livestock headcount. Parida plans to invest the earnings from the loan into increasing livestock quantities and saving money to buy a refrigerator.
