Rudik is a builder, but he has no constant job, and from time to time he hires out to do some construction work in his village and in Sevan city. As Rudik says his work is seasonal, so during autumn and winter months he just stays jobless. This is the period that he fully becomes engaged in farming and agriculture.
He breeds on his farm four cows, four heifers, four calves, sixteen sheep, a horse, and ten lambs. On his plot of land he mainly cultivates potatos and wheat, both for sale. Rudik is not afraid of hard work. All the work around his farm he does nearly alone.
Rudik asks a loan of AMD 1,000 Armenian in order to buy three cows and a lot of animal fodder for coming winter months.
In Nor Horizon, Rudik has paid back already two loans, and he has never been late for it.
