Larisa's story

Larisa has been involved in an agricultural business in the Bekh village of the Syunik region for 25 years. She keeps chickens, grows vegetables, fruits and nuts on her farm. She sells her agricultural products, such as eggs, nuts, vegetables and fruits, in the city of Kapan. Thanks to the profit from running the farm, Larisa has the ability to support her family. Larisa is 56 years old. She graduated from a financial-economics college and currently works, parallel to her agricultural business, as an accountant at a retirement fund. Larisa is married and has three children: two daughters and a son. Both of her daughters are married and live away from the parents, and the son is married as well, but lives together with his family and the parents. Larisa's son works at a military base and also helps Larisa with the farm. Larisa's husband works as a forest ranger at a forestry and also helps his wife with the farm during his free time. Larisa has obtained loans from the Nor Horizon organization twice before and now needs a loan in the amount of $1,350 to purchase a horse and hay for it for the winter. Larisa is certain that the horse is very necessary for her farm. It would be possible to bring wood and the like from unreachable by car places with the help of a horse.
