Anush’s family successfully manages farming. They have a small vegetable-fruit garden for family needs and a very beautiful and big vineyard, the harvest of which they surrender to the factory. They keep five cows, two pigs and ten chickens on their farm. Anush has decided to help her parents to improve their living conditions and asks for a loan of 1,100.000 Armenian drams to buy three cows and to do some repair work on their vineyard. Anush is 28 years old and she lives in the village Achajur in the Tavush area with her mother, father and brother. Her parents are unemployed and both of them are fully engaged in farming and agriculture. Anush works at the Court of Common Equality of Tavush area as judge’s assistant. Simultaneously with her work, Anuah helps her parents around their farm. The main income of their family comes from farming, since they have some loyal customers from the village to whom they can sell meat and milk from their farm. Anush has taken loans from Nor Horizon for three times and she has never had any delays during the time of paying it back. Anush hopes that she and her family will be greatly supported by Kiva lenders.
