Karine's story

Meet Karine, a hardworking farmer from Geghadzor village. She lives there with her son, as her daughter is now married. Karine was raising her children alone, as she was widowed; all the worries of earning a living were on her shoulders.

However, due to her passion for life and strong will, she was able to develop a good farm. There she keeps cows, bulls, chickens, and turkeys. She also cultivates potatoes, carrots, beets, and barley. With the help of her son, she trades the goods in the nearby area. This has been their main income source for many years. As agriculture brings seasonal income, her son often travels to a neighboring country to earn a living and support his mother.

Karine applied for financial support with an aim to sustain the farm. With the provided loan, she plans to purchase good quality forage and fertilizers, therefore increasing the productivity. She hopes to have good sales in the upcoming period, so that there will be no need for her son to go abroad and he'll stay in his homeland.
