Members of the farmer group are planning to purchase another drying equipment.
Our group consists from 15 women farmers. The public fund “AVEP”, within the framework of the project “Improving the conditions of life and food security of rural women in Issyk-Kul oblast by promoting energy-saving fruit drying equipment”, provided drying equipment to us. In autumn with the help of the drying equipment we could dry fruits like apricots, apples and pears and it gave us motivation to improve the number of dried fruits. Due to this reason this year we plan to purchase one more drying equipment on our own.
In winter, schools and kindergartens bought dried fruit from us and gave children compote.
"The members of our group are grateful to the PF AVEP implementing this project and the Embassy of Finland for their financial support, ”says the leader of the“ Ak Bermet ”group.
