Arshak's story

Arshak was born in Sarigyugh village, in the Ijevan area, in 1966. He is married and has three children. His two daughters are married and live separately from their parents, and his son lives with him and helps him with farming. Arshak’s parents also live with him.

For a long time Arshak has been engaged in animal husbandry and land cultivation. On his farm he breeds cows, calves, pigs and chickens. Every summer Arshak transports his farm animals to the mountains for grazing and rents a plot of land where he does hay mowing to accumulate fodder for his farm animals.

During this time he has been able to keep his family, repair his apartment, pay for his elder daughter’s education and organize his daughters’ weddings.

Arshak’s first Kiva loan allowed him to transport his farm animals to the mountains and pay rent for a plot of land. Now he is asking for a 1,000,000 Armenian drams (AMD) loan to buy two more pigs for his farm and also to buy additional fodder for his farm animals.
