Hayk
Hayk is 52 years old. He has lived and worked in the village of Syunik for around 25 years with his wife, sons and daughter. Before this, Hayk and his family lives in Azerbaijan, but during the conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan he was forced to move back to his homeland with his family. At first, it was hard for Hayk to take care of his family. He admitted that it was easier to be in his homeland, of course, but it was not easy to start everything anew and in this difficult time also find work and feed the five children.

When Hayk finished agricultural college, he and his wife started working with farming in the village of Syunik. As a result, Hayk's family now has their own piece of land, where they grow grapes, vegetables and fruit. He also built a small greenhouse where he grows parsley, radishes, onions, coriander, dill, basil, rosemary and similar all year round. Hayk used the income to buy a tractor, which was necessary to him, and further he rents out the tractor to his fellow villagers, which also gives him income.

Currently Hayk and his family are happy and think of themselves as full citizens of their homeland and try to forget the fact that they used to be refugees. For the purchase of seeds, diesel, manure and approval for spring planting, Hayk needs a loan in the amount of 750 US dollars.

Айку 52 года . Он примерно 25 лет живет и работает в селе Сюник с женой ,четырьмя сыновьями и дочкой. До этого Айк и его семья жили в Азербайджане, но во время Армяно- Азербайджанского конфликта он вынужден был переселится со своей семьей на родину. Сначала Айку было тяжело заботится о семье. Как он признался – на исторической родине конечно легче , но не легко было все начать заново и в эти тяжелые времена найти работу и прокормить пятеро детей. Так как Айк окончил сельскохозяйственный техникум – он с женой начал заниматься сельским хозяйством в селе Сюник . В результате у семьи Айка уже есть собственный участок земли, где они выращивают виноград, овощи и фрукты. Он построил также маленькую теплицу где круглый год выращивает петрушку ,редиску, лук, киндзу, укроп, базилик, розмарин и т.д. С прибылью от его хозяйства Айк купил трактор , который был ему необходим, а также Айк трактор сдает в аренду своим односельчанам, что также приносит ему прибыль .
Сегодня Айк и его семья счастливы и считают себя полноправными гражданами своей родины и стараются позабыть тот факт, что они бывшие беженцы.
Для покупки семян, дизтоплива , навоза и одобрения для весеннего посева Айку нужен кредит на сумму 750$.
