Arpik is a farmer from the Paruyr Sevak village in the Ararat region. She lives with her husband, two little sons (a six year old and a one year old), and a little daughter (5 years old). With the help of her husband, she is engaged in beekeeping; breeding livestock, including cows, pigs, and hens; and cultivating watermelon, apricots, and grapes. They realize the agricultural products in the local market are their only source of the family income. The barn housing their livestock is currently in poor condition and needs to be renovated. To continue running her agribusiness in a sustainable way, Arpik needs a loan of 2,600 USD to renovate the barn, purchase some forage for the livestock, and pay for harvesting services. She and her family rely on the kind will of the lenders and will be grateful to them for their support.
