Avetik M. lives with his wife in Dashtadem village, Armenia. Avetik’s children are married and have settled in Russia where they can have jobs and earn sufficient income to raise their families. Avetik and his wife keep a fruit orchard growing world-famous and delicious Armenian apricot, apple and walnut trees. He also keeps a cattle farm and 15 beehives, and cultivates 1 hectare of land. Both his sons try to help their father financially, and their father and grandfather enjoy sharing the fruit produced on their orchard with the children and grandchildren by sending them to cold Russia to remind them of the taste of delicious fruits from sunny Noah’s land. To diversify his source of revenue, Avetik has applied for a loan to increase his number of cattle.
