Galima Muhametarimovna cleans a bucket before milking one of her four cows in her yard

Galima Muhametarimovna cleans a bucket before milking one of her four cows in her yard in the village of Altymysh in the Chuy Province of Kyrgyzstan. Before the UN Women Project provided a grant for social infrastructure development in 2009, Muhametarimovna earned between 5 to 7 Soms (.11 to .15 cents) per liter of milk. She now earns 13 Soms (29 cents) per liter by selling to a large milk producer in Bishkek.
