After serving in the Armenian army, Arman joined his family's business. Specifically, he and his family are engaged in cattle-breeding, beekeeping, and farming. Arman says that farming is a very hard business, not only because it is labor-intensive, but also because he has to defend the beehives from bears, who sometimes steal them from the villagers. Since last month Arman has also worked as a truck driver to supplement his income while he continues with his farming operations.
This would be Arman’s second loan from both Kiva and Nor Horizon. He is seeking a loan in the amount of 600,000 AMD ($1,600) to buy some calves for his farm and to increase the number of his beehives.
