64-year-old Mkhitar lives in Ddmashen village, in the area of Sevan, with his wife. Mkhitar’s 3 daughters and son have already married and they live separately from their parents. For 30 years Mkhitar had worked as a lorry driver in different organizations.

He has been running a farm for about 12 years. On his farm he has cows, sheep, pigs and chickens. He also grows potatoes. With his wife’s help, Mkhitar manages his farm and sells his farm produce (milk, fermented milk, cheese, potatoes) in the Yerevan food market. He and his wife like their occupation and they work very hard, so they were able to organize their children’s weddings, and now they support themselves independently.

Mkhitar needs an 800.000 AMD loan to increase his number of sheep, which will lead to his family’s income growth in the near future.
