Sabina is a Jabrayili refugee. She is very kind, caring and also very energetic in her work. Sabina raises cattle, fattens them and sells them for a profitable price. Her husband is the major support for her in this business.
She sells meat at the central bazaar for profits. In Azerbaijan, there is a high demand for meat, because it is used in a lot of meals, such as kufta (soup), kababs, dolma etc. Her income from this business is 80 AZN per month.
