In the village, the only source of income for Astghik’s family is from farming and agriculture. Astghik has five cows on her farm, and on her plot of land she cultivates potatoes. Her husband’s parents help her a little, but they are already old and unhealthy, so mainly she manages everything about the farm alone. She sells her farm milk and macun (Armenian national dairy product) to the village people.
In order for get ready for spring sowing activities and to buy new type of potato seedlings and some fertilizer, Astghik asks a loan of 200,000 Armenian drams.
Beforehand, she thanks Kiva for the support, which will be of great use for her farm.
