Tavakkul is a farmer with 17 years of experience. He is engaged in farming and animal husbandry. His family's only income is from the sale of dairy products and greens. His family -- his wife and 24-year-old son -- closely participate in this activity.
Today, the lack of quality medicines for animals and fertilizer for the land creates difficulties in his work. To see the result of the treatment of animals, Tavakkul requires the amount of 1,200 AZN (Azerbaijani new manat) for the purchase of quality medicines.
