In 2010, clashes between ethnic Uzbeks and Kyrgyz in Kyrgyzstan's southern city of Osh left dead an estimated 2,000 people, mostly Uzbeks.
Ms. Erkolova said that when a couple marries, they and their families are eligible for payment of up to just over $2,000.
"In our work since 2010, it appears [the program] is helping to unite Uzbek and Kyrgyz families," said Gulmara Erkolova, a state employee at the city hall in Osh who has helped implement the plan, working closely with the mayor.
