Artush is 40 years old. After graduating high school he has worked in the Ararat regional forest reserve as a forester. Artush is married and lives with his wife, two children and retired parents in Vedi city which is in the Ararat region.
Artush is also engaged in farming and animal breeding. He raises vegetables on his own plot of land near his house which he sells at the Vedi vegetable markets. Artush has a large barn for animals where he breeds two cows and piglets. Artush is the only breadwinner in his large family. His family members help him with the farming and he couldn't overcome some of the difficulties in agriculture without their support.
As Artush said it is very important to provide his animals with the best conditions. The barn must be comfortable for breeding and warm for winter months.
Artush is requesting a loan from Kiva lenders to repair the roof of his animal’s barn and to buy fodder for them. It is the first loan with Kiva and Artush thanks the lenders for their support.
