Anna lives in Ddmashen village in the region of Gegharkunik. She is 48 years old. She lives with her husband, son and with her retired mother-in-law. Her husband is unemployed and he helps Anna in farming. Anna’s son works as a police inspector and a makes a small salary. Anna has never worked and since getting married she has been engaged in farming. In their farm they have 4 cows, 2 calves and 30 chickens. Anna’s son sometimes helps her in farming. Anna is a very hard working woman, but the work in the farm is a lot and problems are a lot as well. So she decided to ask for a loan from Kiva in order to be able to buy fuel for the land cultivation process, fodder for her animals, and potato seedlings. She hopes that Kiva lenders will give her a chance to significantly improve their living conditions
