Ruhangiz has been running a bakery oven for the last two years with the handholding support of two workers. She bakes and sells bread, pita bread and pies.
With this income, she is hardly able to manage the educational expenses of her children in the future. So, with the help of her husband she wants to start an agriculture business parallel with the bakery by taking out a loan from VFAC. With the present loan, Ruhangiz wants to purchase one head of diary cow.
Ruhangiz is 23, married and the mother of two children ages one and three. In the picture, you can see her family at her workplace.
