Jamal H. is 32-year-old man who raises sheep in the small village of Imishli. He is single but is responsible for his elderly parents. Breeding sheep is the only source of income for his family. Jamal has been breeding sheep for last 10 years. He is applying for 1600 AZN to purchase more sheep and fodder. He believes that he can earn more profit this winter as the demand for mutton in winter season is very high. We wish good luck to this hardworking man.
