Nairi and his wife enjoy the work that they do in their colorful fruit garden, which they have cultivated with their own day and night work. They are mainly engaged in agricultural activities; they cultivate some vegetables for their family needs (greens, tomatoes, beans and cucumbers) and they also have a lot of fruit trees (apple, apricot, pear, peach and mulberry trees), the harvest of which they sell through the re-sellers. Nairi says that the region where he lives is perfect particularly for agriculture but the farming is not very developed here, which is why many families here like his, keep very few farm animals (he has only two bulls).
Nairi has taken loans from Nor Horizon three times and it is his first deal with Kiva lenders. He needs this loan in order to organize autumn harvest and hay gathering activities.
