Mareta runs pig breeding and gardening ventures in Getahovit village, Tavush region. Mareta breeds sows and piglets and grows apples, pears and plums. She sells pork to her neighbours. She sells fruit at her husband’s stall in the food market, as her husband is engaged in selling fruit and vegetables. Also Marieta has some chickens and turkeys, but she uses the eggs, chicken and turkey meat produced for her big family’s needs.

Mareta is 39 years old and she has 4 children: 3 daughters and a son. Her eldest daughter is a student, and the other children are pupils.

Thanks to her occupation Mareta has covered part of her family’s needs; also she was able to buy necessary furniture for her house.

Mareta says that pig breeding is a rather profitable business so she intends to develop it. Therefore she is asking for a 1,000,000 Armenian dram loan to buy some more sows and piglets. This will allow Mareta to increase her family’s income in future.
