Heriqnaz lives with her son in Vosketap village in the Ararat region. She earns her living by selling agricultural products in the local markets. Heriqnaz owns an orchard where different types of trees are grown (peach, apricot, plum, nut, apple, and pear). Heriqnaz has been involved in agriculture for 10 years. She became the only breadwinner in her family after her husband died and since then has worked twice as hard to provide appropriate living conditions for her son.
Heriqnaz decided to apply for this loan to purchase tomato seeds and fertilizer, which a revery important for successful cultivation of the land. The loan is very important for Heriqnaz to enlarge her farming business and increase income. She hopes that Kiva lenders will give her an opportunity to enrich both her farm and her family's income.
