Vardan's story

Vardan has been involved in an agricultural business for ten years. He leases a plot of land in the Kadjaran village in the Syunik region, where he grows vegetables and fruits, primarily potatoes, for sale. Vardan also grows fruits, such as pomegranates, figs and peaches, in the city of Meghri. He sells fruits and vegetables in the cities of Yerevan, Kapan and Kadjaran. Vardan also has a cultivator, with the help of which he plows soil for the residents of Kadjaran for pay. Vardan wants to buy a manual grass mower, which would allow him to cut hay also for pay in order to increase his family's income. This is why Vardan needs a loan in the amount of 650,000 dram. Vardan is 46 years old, and he lives in Kadjaran with his wife, daughter and son. Vardan's wife works at a Kadjaran factory, daughter recently finished school, and son still attends school.
