In any society, there is a problem of not appreciating or underestimating the huge labor resources of women who stay at home to look after their children, retired women and women with disabilities.
One of the ways to organize it properly and create a regular income is a mushroom production project.
Mushrooms are delicate vegetables with the best nutrients, capable of growing even in frosty conditions suitable for the climate of our country.
Today, 1 person in the world eats 1700 grams of mushrooms per year, while in Mongolia it is 180 grams, and in Japan it is 12800 grams.
However, the United Nations General Assembly recommends that 1 person/year eat 10,000 grams of mushrooms.
As a result of our project, Mongolians will eat 360 grams of mushrooms.
