Ashkhen is a farmer from Hatsik village where she lives with her husband, their young daughter her husband's brother.
She has been running her farm for 7 years and has supported her family with the income from the farm. Ashkhen's husband went abroad in order to financially support his family. But now the farming business is the only source of income for Ashkhen.
She has applied for a loan to develop her business. With this loan she plans to purchase fertilizer, which is very important for successful cultivation of the land. The loan will also be used to purchase forage for feeding the livestock and covering fuel costs. As a woman with lot of daily responsibilities, it is very difficult for Ashkhen to do farming and at the same time take care of little daughter. Ashkhen hopes that this loan will ease her farming problems and will give her opportunity to earn more income.
