Aramayis's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy one more cow and fodder for his farm animals.
Aramayis was born in 1960 in the village of Verin Khotanan. He has a technical degree. He served in the army for 19 years and now receives a military pension. His wife works in a store; his daughter is married and lives separately; the oldest son works as a driver, and the younger is a student at the Erevan University for Architecture and Construction. Aramayis’ mother, who is severely ill, also lives with him. Since 1996, Aramayis has been working as a farmer in the village of Vernin Khotanan. At his farm he grows vegetables raises cattle and poultry and also keeps bees. Aramayis sells vegetables, beef, milk, eggs and honey from his farm at the market of the town of Kapan, to his loyal customers. This is how he supports his family. Aramayis has to work at his farm and take care of his ailing mother on his own as the other family members are either employed elsewhere or study. Aramayis needs a loan of 500,000 AMD in order to buy an additional cow as well as hay.
