Manvel has been involved in agriculture for 12 years.
He is a father of three sons and lives in a small village of Ararat region.
Manvel runs a farm which currently includes a cow, 20 chickens, 2 bulls. He owns an agricultural land where he cultivates different types of fruits and vegetables (wheat, tomato, peach, apricot, cherry, plum, nut, apple and pear). Manvel's whole family helps him with running a business. His wife milks cows and uses it in cheese production. Manvel's sons help him to gather harvest and sell it locally.
As farming business is the only source of Manvel's income, it is very important for him to expand it.
Because now there is a big demand of pork in Armenian market, Manvel would like to have pigs which he would fatten and sell. He has applied for this loan to purchase pigs, forage for feeding them and tomato seeds for cultivation. The loan is very important for Manvel to enlarge his farm, gather more income and improve his family's living conditions.
