Sargis's story

Sargis lives with his family of three in the village of Akunq in Armenia. Farming is the family's main activity and source of income. Being the main breadwinner of the family, he puts all his efforts into creating a better and sustainable living for the family.

After learning about the advantages of solar systems, Sargis decided to install one at his house. With Kiva's field partner SEF’s financial support, he will pay for the solar water heating system and its installation. This enhancement will surely help to cut utility costs and move the family towards a more sustainable consumption of power. Sargis already feels the opportunities of the system and inspires the neighbors to go green, too.
