Artem
Artem is a 23-year-old young farmer. He lives with his parents and brother in Tsaghkunk village, which is in the Sevan area. Artem’s father is a tractor driver and mechanization specialist, and from childhood Artem loved and has been engaged in agricultural techniques. Often he helps his father in this occupation.

Artem’s family is engaged in farming and animal breeding. They have 6 cows, more than 25 sheep and 3 calves. Artem transports meat and dairy production from animal breeding to Yerevan and sells in the food markets. In the garden near their house, Artem grows vegetables and fruits. Artem and his family members work hard throughout the day to take care of all the family's needs. He says that agricultural business is very hard but very profitable.

Artem needs a loan to buy new equipment which produces bales of hay, which will help his family to organize rural work more efficient. Artem decided to provide paid services with his new equipment to his villagers. Artem hopes to receive more profit from his lovely occupation and to collect money for his wedding in the future.
