Voskehat has a big family of eight, including Voskehat herself, her husband (pictured in the photo), her twin daughters, her parents-in-law, and her brother and sister. The family owns a farm which currently includes cows, pigs, chickens and turkeys. Voskehat also grows different types of trees (peach, apricot, nut, apple, pear, cherry and plum).
Together with Voskehat, all of the family members run a farming business. The women milk the cows and make dairy products, and the men sell these dairy products and the harvest at local markets. Agriculture helps the family to have a stable income and it is very important to them.
They own a barn that is old and needs to be renovated. Unfortunately, as daily costs are very high, Voskehat has no financial means for the renovation. With this loan, she plans to renovate the barn and to purchase fertilizer and fuel for transporting the gathered harvest to the market.
This loan is very important to this family, as it will help them to cover their operation costs and continue to expand their farming business.
