Ruth has been working in the dairy business for 13 years. She began when she was very young, working with her mother who taught her everything about caring for dairy cows. Today she has her own dairy cow, and she sells all the milk to a local company that makes all kinds of dairy products.

This protects her income and let's her grow her business, so that she can continue to improve her living conditions.
