Svetik lives with her daughter in Banavan village of the Ararat region. Svetik is a nurse at a school in Ararat, and her daughter works in the school of Vanashen, a neighboring village. Svetik and her daughter also run a farm, where they cultivate tomatoes and grow peach, apricot and pear trees.
Svetik wants to start autumn sowing, but she doesn't have sufficient means to do so. She has applied for this loan to purchase tomato seeds and fertilizer for land cultivation, and to pay for watering the land. Svetik will also hire workers to assist in the cultivation process. This will allow Svetik to gather a good harvest of tomatoes to sell in order to earn enough income to re-invest in her agriculture business next year.
