Sashik lives in the village of Vazashen which is in the Tavsuh region. Sashik has a big and nice family. He has three children (who are already married) and six grandchildren. Sashik's youngest son, along with his family, lives with him and helps him a lot in farming and agriculture.

For many years, Sashik has worked as a locksmith. Now, he works as an electrician. His wife also works as an accountant at the local school. At the same school, their daughter-in-law works as a librarian.

Despite all the family members having their own jobs, they perfectly manage their farm and agricultural occupations. They have on their farm, three pigs and twenty piglets, twenty chickens, and a cow. Their agricultural occupation is bigger because they have a great amount of land. Most of their time and virtue goes to land cultivation and on maintaining a fruit garden. They cultivate crops, cucumbers, tomatoes, beans, and potatoes. They also have apple, plum, peach, persimmon, and fig trees. All these goods they manage to sell through re-sellers.

Sashik asks for a loan because he wants to buy several pigs, a lot of animal fodder, and also several bee hives. It is his first loan with Kiva and he can be guaranteed to be a very responsible client since, five times, he has taken loans from Nor Horizon and he has successfully paid them back.
