At the same time, she has been engaged in a farming and agricultural business with her family. She grows in her garden vegetables, which her husband sells in Sevan fruit markets. Satik has a large animal barn and breeds cows and sheep. The main income in her family is from agriculture as salaries are too low in her region. Satik also has a large plot of land near Varser village. From this land, Satik takes fodder for her animals. Without any mechanical tools it is very hard to mow the grass. So she needs a loan to buy a mowing machine, which Satik and her husband will use to mow grass and collect fodder for winter for her animals.
