Saro's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to diversify the farm with cows and pigs, thus getting a chance to access a wider market and increase his agri-business income so that he changes the family's living.

Saro's story

Meet Saro again. He lives with his elderly parents, wife and teenage daughter in Meghri town. Agriculture is the main activity and source of income for his family. On his farm, he keeps 50 bee families that you can admire in the picture. The produced honey is later sold in the nearby area. He always tries to allocate time to develop the farm.

Having thoughts of expansion in mind, Saro applied for financial support. With the provided loan he plans to diversify the farm with cows and pigs. He is sure that these enhancements will help him access a wider market and increase his agri-business income.

Saro is full of hope that this financial investment and his efforts will give the best results and he will create a better living for his lovely family.
