Shamagha, 59, is a farmer. She lives with her husband and son in Koti village, which is near Ijevan. Her elder son and daughter are married and live with their families away from their parents.

For more than 20 years, Shamagha worked for her town's government. Now, the only source of Shamagha’s family income is farming and animal breeding. Shamagha and her pensioner husband have been engaged in the agricultural business for many years. In her garden, Shamagha grows tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and potatoes, which her husband sells in Ijevan's markets. Shamagha also breeds piglets. She has a large barn for pigs near her house and keeps more than 15 pigs. Shamagha is very satisfied by her animal breeding, which allows her to meet her family needs.

Shamagha needs a loan of 1,000,000 to repair the barn for her piglets. A new, large, comfortable barn will allow her to add the number of pigs that she raises. She hopes to finish the repairing process before the cold season.
