Sofya is 25 years old and lives in Syunik region with her husband (in the photo). This young family is involved in beekeeping. They keep 15 beehives and get high quality honey. Sofya's husband, Alen, sells the honey in the local markets.

Alen is a driver in a local company, but his monthly income isn't enough to cover the family's daily costs. So, Sofya has applied for this loan to purchase five colonies of bees. This will help her to get more honey. The family's income will significantly increase and they would be able to improve their living conditions.
