For several years Sandukht has worked at the house of culture in their village. She has also worked at the knitting factory. When she got married she became a housewife and she brought up her three nice children (two daughters and a son). Today her daughters are married and they live separately with their families, and her son is now in the military service.
Sandukht and her husband now have nothing to do but to become fully engaged in farming and agriculture. They cultivate potatoes, beetroot and barley, and on their small farm they also have two cows, a bull, two calves, eight sheep and forty chickens. Sandukht sells all their farm products herself at their village wholesale food market.
She is asking for a loan of 500,000 Armenian drams to increase the number of her farm cattle. She has already taken a loan once from Nor Horizon and she is sure that this deal with Kiva lenders will be as productive as the previous one with Nor Horizon.
