During a training exercise in the military service, Armen was wounded in the leg and, unfortunately, his leg was amputated. Afterwards he returned to his native village and lived with his grandparents. His parents live in the city of Kapan. Several years ago, both his grandfather and grandmother died and now he lives completely alone.
He says he feels full of energy, is a strong man, and he is able to solve any difficulties which can occur during farming. He breeds three cows, and sells dairy products at the Kapan and Kajaran wholesale markets to his loyal customers.
Armen wants to enlarge his farm, so he asks a loan to buy a lot of chickens, a bull, and animal fodder. He is sure that very soon, thanks to his farm profit, he will be able to get married and have his own lovely family.
