Garegin is an experienced agronomist from Lernadzor village of Syuniq region. He lives with his wife, his 17-year-old daughter, 16-year-old son and his mother. He works in the government sector and his wife works in the village school. They work hard to be able to earn a living for the family. Their salaries, however, are so low that they need alternative sources of income to afford a living. To meet the daily needs of his family, Garegin is engaged in beekeeping. The latter is an important source of the family's income. He sells the honey in the local market and has a high demand there. To continue beekeeping in a sustainable way, Garegin needs to expand it a little bit. He needs a loan of USD 1500 to purchase new beehives. Garegin and his family highly rely on the good will of the lenders and will be very thankful to them for their support in collecting the needed loan to sustain their agribusiness
