Both Hrachyan and his wife are self-employed. They are engaged in farming and agriculture. Hrachya is the herdsman of their village. On their farm they have a large lot of animals, and it is the only source of income for their family. Hrachya has four cows, a calf, 12 sheep, four lambs, two piglets and a horse. Near their house they have a small plot of land where they cultivate tomatoes, carrots and different greens. All the income that they earn from farming they use first of all for their son’s medicines and then for other needs of their family and farm. Hrachya and his wife do their very best to facilitate their son’s life.
Hrachya asks for a loan of 1,000,000 Armenian drams to buy three cows in order to increase his farming. He hopes very much that Kiva will support him and help him to better his family's poor living conditions.
