Yuri has been involved in agricultural work in the Shishkert village of the Syunik region for ten years. He keeps bees, cattle, sheep and chickens. He also grows vegetables and fruits. Selling the resulting products, such as honey, beef, lamb, milk, eggs, wool, vegetables and fruits, at the market of Kapan, allows Yuri to have the ability to support his large family. Yuri is 47 years old. He got a speciality of a driver at a technical college and works as a driver at one of the Kapan organizations parallel to his agricultural business. Yuri is married and has three children: a son and two daughters. His wife works as a cook at one of the Kapan cafes, his son helps the father with running the agricultural business, the oldest daughter works as a salesperson at a store, and the youngest attends a college to become a telecommunications worker. Yuri's parents also live with him, and they help him to run the agricultural business within their abilities. Yuri needs a loan in the amount of 500,000 dram to organize hay-gathering work and to prepare livestock feed. He will spend this money partially on buying diesel fuel, leasing agricultural machinery, buying rope to tie the hay, etc.
