Mr. Ry P. was born in 1950. He is married and blessed with four children, three of whom are employed at different occupations, while another one attends school.
Ry P. is engaged in his own business, the main operation of which is to buy and sell animals. He buys the animals in bulk from rural people and fattens them for a while before selling them.
In addition, he owns a horse and a cart that he uses to provide taxi service, while his wife raises crops and pigs to earn a living. Ry P. is taking out his first loan to add to the financial capital of his animal trade.
Ry P. was busy at his business activity when the photo taken, so his wife is pictured instead.
