Samvel is 57 years old and lives in Kapan city. He is married and has two sons and a daughter. His elder son and daughter are married and they live separately with their families. Samvel’s wife works at Kapan copper company as a senior assistant. Samvel works as a driver/distributor and is also engaged in agriculture. He has a piece of his own land where he cultivates tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers. Although his land is not big, it needs care and takes much time. Samvel has watering problems since all irrigation pipes have become outdated with the passage of time.

Samvel requests a loan of 200,000 Armenian drams to buy new pipes for irrigation and to repair the fences around his house. He is sure that Kiva will support him and help him to overcome these problems.
