Manvel is a farmer from the Shirak region. He is a 46-year-old father of four children. Manvel lives with his wife, son and three daughters. He keeps livestock, which currently includes 2 cows, 2 bulls, 15 chickens and 15 colonies of bees. Manvel also owns agricultural land where he cultivates wheat and potatoes.
As the family is big, it is very difficult for Manvel to cover basic costs. Agriculture helps him to gather income which is hardly enough for covering the family's daily costs. As Manvel has no sufficient financial means to expand his farm, he has applied for this loan.
With the loan's help, Manvel will purchase forage for feeding the livestock and potato seeds for cultivation. This will enable him to gather more income and ensure a better life for his family.
