During the morning hours, Biktor works as a school bus driver. He takes children to school. After the morning, he is busy in the family's agricultural business. Marina works as a teacher in the local school. Biktor’s parents and Marina are also involved in agriculture. The family owns three milk cows. Marina produces cheese, which is sold locally to dairy product retailers. Also, the family grows beans and maize on a family-owned 1.25-hectare parcel of land. About half of the harvested products are sold locally and the rest is used for feeding the cows. Last year, Biktor started a mini sheep farm. He purchased nine lambs and raised them.

With the requested loan, Biktor plans to purchase 20 sheep. He will sell sheep milk products and lambs. This will significantly increase the income of the family. Biktor plans to reinvest the profit received from sheep breeding in the same business, in order to expand it and make it more profitable for the future.
