Samvel's story

Samvel is a veterinarian. In addition to his professional work, he keeps livestock. The family's main income come from the livestock. Their current income is not enough to cover the family’s daily expenses. Samvel would like to purchase a horse, as well as a sheep shaver. Samvel will be able to shear the sheep and the wool not only for the family needs, but also to sell. This will help Samvel to get additional income and insure a brighter future for his family. Samvel lives together with his wife and two children.
