Henzel's story

Henzel is a 59-year-old widower. His wife passed away a year ago, and now he lives alone in the village of Srashen in the Syunik province. Around the house, he is helped by his only daughter, who is married and lives with her family separately from her father.

Henzel is a tractor operator/mechanic by training. Presently, he works for his village's municipal office and loves his work. In addition, he is engaged in agriculture in his native village, growing mainly vegetables such as tomatoes, cucumbers, potatoes, peppers and eggplant. Henzel also keeps a cow and chickens, who provide him with his daily milk, cheese and eggs. Finally, he has a small plot of land near his home where he sows wheat for producing his annual supply of flour.

Henzel is asking Kiva lenders for a loan of 400,000 Armenian dram to purchase seeds for the spring planting.
