Sakhan is a 62-year-old widowed mother of two children. 25 years ago, searching for a way to support her family, she bought a horse and started a farming and animal raising business. Thanks to her hard work and dedication, her business has now grown to two horses, one cow, ten heads of small-horned cattle and 3.6 hectares of land. It brings in around 4,000 soms a month in income.
