36-year-old driver Sasun lives with his wife and daughter in the village of Tsovagyugh, which is in the Sevan area. After getting married, Sasun started to work as a driver in Sevan city, but his main source of income comes from his agricultural business. Since childhood, Sasun has been engaged in farming. Now his wife helps him on the farm. They breed cows and sheep in the barn for animals, which they have built near their house. The milk from the farm Sasun provides to one of the biggest companies that produces dairy products and the meat from farming Sasun sells to a Sevan foods market. At the same time, his wife grows vegetables and fruits in their garden, which brings them additional income. Sasun is very pleased with his agricultural business, which allows him to sustain his family's needs and pay for his daughter education.

Because of the higher demand for milk in his region, Sasun decided to increase his number of animals and ask for a loan from Kiva to buy some calves and fodder for his animals. This is the first loan from Nor Horizon and from Kiva for Sasun and he hopes that this cooperation will be successful for him and that he will receive a good profit after this deal.
