Orozbek's story

Orozbek J. is a 58-year-old farmer who lives in Kulanak village. He is married and has six children. Orozbek worked as a foreman at the local pump plant for twenty years and now receives a pension. In order to find additional means of subsistence, he decided to develop his farm that has been maintained for more than twenty years.

Orozbek also broadened the farm by breeding poultry; now he has seventy turkeys and thirty hens. With the revenues from this activity, he was able to buy a car for his family. Conditions are good for breeding livestock, and he plans to purchase more cattle.
