A young farmer, Omirbek Isakov, 17, demonstrates his farming skills in the Kyrgyz mountains surrounding the lake of Issyk-Kol. He attends school in the village of Tholpon-Ata. His family have always farmed in this area and he plans to continue the tradition. However, he faces the all-too-common problems of lack of financial resources, inadequate investment and the need for new agricultural equipment. Š Photo: Shamil Zhumatov
