Gevorg has a mixer, where he mixes sand, cement, and water. After mixing, he pours the concrete into special metal forms and then dries slabs in a natural way. Now Gevorg is asking for a 720,000 Armenian dram (AMD) loan to buy a dryer for the slabs, which will allow him to shorten the period of production time. Thanks to incomes from his cement block and slab business, Gevorg has been able to meet many of his family's financial needs.
