For many years, Arsen and his family lived in Poland, where he had some business but very little income. The low income made them decide to return to their homeland. Today Arsen owns a plot of land, on which he cultivates potatoes and grain. He also has a big and rich farm; he keeps two cows, one heifer, two calves, two pigs, ten sheep, eight lambs and fifty chickens. All these he has earned during several years, by devoting himself to his work.
Arsen asks a loan of 500,000 Armenian drams, which he will use to buy fertilizer for his land. He hopes very much that this support will be the beginning of future cooperation, between him and Kiva lenders.
