Arsen is the father of three sons and all of them are still school-aged. Arsen is divorced and the care of his children and their everyday needs are Arsen’s duty. Despite the different construction work that he does around his village, he earns his family's living through farming and agriculture. His father was a very skilled farmer and he was their village shepherd, so when Arsen was a child he dreamed of becoming a good and clever farmer like his father. Now he has a cute farm where he has piglets and chickens. He manages the farming with his sons, who help him and at the same time learn a lot for their own.
Arsen asks for a loan of 500,000 Armenian drams since he wants to buy a pig and fodder for his farm animals. This will mean that he will have a richer farm and he can also sell meat with good profit for his family.
