Elza's story

Elza is a hardworking farmer from Hatsavan village in Armenia. She is married and lives with her husband, son and son's family. The family owns a small farm, which is the main source of their income. Elza farms their potatoes and garlic with great love and care. All of the family’s produce, including the honey from their seven hives of bees, is sold in the local market.

To further develop their small farm under conditions of ever-growing economic instability and severe competition, Elza has applied for a 500,000 AMD loan through Kiva's field partner SEF. The family is going to buy a new variety of seeds and fuel and pay for some plowing and sowing needed. They are determined to increase the productivity of their farm and maintain their standing in a highly-competitive market.

Elza believes that after all of these enhancements she will be able to increase the family's earnings and ensure better living conditions for them. She is full of hope and strives for a brighter future.
