Alisa's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to pay for 15 sheep and 10 lambs, to purchase fertilizer and rent a truck needed for cultivation.
Alisa is from Ashotavan village of Syuniq region, where she lives with her husband and school-aged son. The region where the family lives is famous for its severe climate, so locals here are mostly involved in cattle breeding and some land cultivation. Alisa has been involved in agriculture for many years. She raises cattle, keeps five colonies of bees and cultivates several kinds of fruits and vegetables (potato, apple, plum, and pear). Alisa's only income comes from agriculture, so the farming business is very important for her and her family. Now, this hardworking woman is requesting her second Kiva loan. She needs your help to pay for 15 sheep and 10 lambs, to purchase fertilizer and rent a truck needed for cultivation. Alisa wants to enlarge and develop her farm. She is very graceful for your help.
