Vazgen is farmer from Aygavan village, in Ararat region. He has been running a farm for 15 years, and it has become a part of his life. He keeps 10 little pigs and 30 chickens, and he grows peach, apricot, cherry, plum, apple and pear trees. He is very hard working and does his best to gather a good harvest and sustain his wife's and son's living.

Vazgen owns a greenhouse, which is too old and needs to be renovated. As his monthly income is hardly enough for covering daily costs, it is very difficult for him to pay for the renovation. Vazgen has applied for this loan to renovate the greenhouse, as well as to purchase tomato seeds, fertilizer, and forage for feeding pigs. Realizing that the farm business is the main source of his family's income, Vazgen would like to expand it and earn higher income.
