Raatkan has invested 2000 soms in the purchase of two heads of cattle when she got married 42 years ago. Since then she has been a frequent visitor to the Zhazi cattle market where she sells cattle which has been fed lovingly for several months. Youngest sons, Alym and Asan, often help their mother. During the past years Raatkan has held very festive weddings for her sons.
She also combines agriculture with animal husbandry. She needs to hurry and purchase fertilizer because the sowing season is quickly approaching. Raatkan is very hopeful that this loan will allow her buy one ton of fertilizer.
