Galima Milks Her Cows Each Morning

Galima Muhametarimovna leads a calf to its mother on her small farm in the village of Altymysh in the Chuy Province of Kyrgyzstan.

 

Galima milks her cows each morning, contributing the milk to a local Milk Collection Center, which records how much she provides. When the milk, stored in tanks purchased through a UN Women Program grant, is collected each week by a large dairy distributor in Bishkek, she and the other contributing farmers are paid.
