Maksim's story

Maksim is photographed at the back of their family house. He is 36, married, and has two children, 8 and 4 years old. From the shape of the house shown in the photo, one can tell the poverty level of Maksim’s family. The covered spots with waterproofs are called ‘warm beds’; is the place where seeds are thrown to thrive to seedlings; afterwards, they can be planted outside.

Maksim, whose main activity of practice is agriculture, wants to buy potato and sage seeds, medicinal cane cholla flower seeds, and dig a water well.

Mostly he plants green beans, peas, wheat, tobacco and flaxseed; tobacco is widely planted in the villages around.

He’s got a dairy cow as well, to cover the family dairy needs; he sells the rest, since his cow produces about 20 kg milk a day.
