Kristine's story

Kristine lives in Jermuk town with her husband, her mother and her 8-year-old daughter. Kristine is a teacher at the local school, but her salary is not enough to cover the family's costs. About four years ago Kristine and her husband decided to start raising cattle, which would ensure an increased income for the family. Now Kristine would like to increase the number of cattle; she plans to purchase two cows and a calf. This will bring additional income for agriculture, which is important for Kristine to improve her household conditions and provide a better quality of life for her family.
