Shushanik lives in Vostan village of Ararat region with her husband and two sons. Together with her husband, Shushanik is involved in agriculture. They keep 30 chickens and also have a plot of land where pear, nut, apple and apricot trees are grown. As agriculture is the only source of income for this family, they would like to expand it.
Shushanik has requested this loan to purchase tomato seeds and fertilizer to cultivate tomatoes for selling it during the next season. Because their greenhouse is very old and needs to be improved, Shushanik will use the other part of the loan in purchasing polyethylene cover for the greenhouse to renovate it. This will help her to cultivate more vegetables in the future, which will significantly increase the family income.
