Andranik's story

Andranik is thankful for his first Kiva loan which helped him to develop his trading business. Today he is a farmer as he closed his business, and he became engaged only in farming, in which he was interested since his very young age. Now he is the owner of a lovely farm that, many years ago, was established by his father who left it to his only son. Now in his native village Tsovagyugh of Gegharkunik region, Andranik lives with his nice family (he has two daughters and a son) and takes care of his farm. Here he has cows, calves, a pig and heifers. Andramik sells a lot of milk, macun (national dairy product), cheese, curd, and also meat (beef, pork and mutton). For his farm products Andranik has his regular customers and also re-sellers from the city. In order to enlarge the sale of dairy products from his farm, Andranik decided to ask Kiva lenders for a loan for the second time. With this loan amount he will buy one more cow and also fodder for his farm cattle.
