Hovhannes's story

Hovhannes lives in a small city, Gavar, which is in the Gegharkunik area. He is married and has a son who is a student, and a daughter who is already married. Hovhannes’ wife works at Gavar State Agricultural College. Hovhannes has a vocational education with a specialty in radiotechnics. For several years he worked at his specialty, but now he works as a driver and is also engaged in farming. He has five cows and six calves. Since their farm cattle are few, their income is not enough for their family needs. Hovhannes considers that although his son is studying at Yerevan and that life in the city may seem to him more colorful and easier than in their village, he wants his son to be engaged in farming and be close to their village and to their land. Hovhannes wishes to enlarge his farm and he asks a loan of 900,000 Armenian drams to buy a cow and a bull and a lot of animal fodder which will keep his animals safe and fed in the winter months.
