Armen lives in the village of Akhuryan with his wife and two daughters. He used to go abroad and work for awhile providing his family with money. But starting from 2010 he has been involved in agriculture and it is the only source of income. Armen keeps 20 colonies of bees, 5 pigs and 10 piglets. Near the village where Armen lives, he owns a plot of agricultural land where wheat and barley are cultivated. He works hard to gather a good harvest and sell it locally. He gets high quality honey and as honey is a must have product for each household in the community, Armen is able to sell it at a good price.
Now, this farmer with a great credit history behind him has requested a loan to purchase 10 colonies of bees, barley and wheat seeds, and fertilizer. These purchases will greatly support Armen to enlarge his farming business and improve his family's living conditions.
