Satenik's story

Get to know Satenik, an ambitious farmer from Shvanidzor village, where she lives with her husband. Together they have kept 50 bee colonies for 5 years. They have a loyal customer base, to whom they sell honey almost every year. Aside from agriculture, Satenik teaches the Armenian language at a local school already 10 years. Later she got a chance to be funded with the help of Kiva community and expanded their farm with pigs (pictured) and sheep. As Satenik and her husband saw the potential for further development they now request a help to purchase 2 more pigs and buy good quality forage for them. They are sure that this will help them access a wider market and increase the income from sales. Satenik and her husband are hoping to have the expected results sooner and develop the farm even more.
