Silva is from Artsvanik village of Syunik region. She has been teaching in a local school for many years.
Silva lives with her husband, Hamlet, and jointly with him is involved in cattle breeding. They keep seven cows and 10 oxen. Silva collects milk, and Hamlet sells the milk and milk products in the local market. As agriculture helps them to have a stable income during the month, Silva, together with her husband, would like to increase their livestock.
Silva has applied for this loan to pay for a cow and an ox. This would help them to gather more products, sell them and earn more income. Silva's teacher's salary is hardly enough to cover daily costs so the agricultural income is very important for her to sustain her family and live a better life.
