Sergey's story

Sergey was born in the city of Kapan and now lives in the village of Syunik. After school, he studied at the zootechnical-veterinary institute of Yerevan, specializing in veterinary science. He now works as a director of studies in a school located in Kapan. At the same time he has been involved in agriculture, animal husbandry, beekeeping, and raising chickens in his village since 2005. Sergey owns some land in Syunik and he grows vegetables which he sells locally. He also grows hay which he sells to a farming business.

Sergey has been involved in beekeeping for many years. He owns more than 15 beehives and makes a decent income from selling honey at the market. According to Sergey, in order to make some good honey, you need to first and foremost love your bees and to take care of them with a lot of patience.

Sergey is married and he has two daughters. His wife greatly helps him to manage his farming and beekeeping businesses.

Sergey needs a loan of 300,000 Armenian dram to buy additional beehives, frames and protective clothing for beekeeping.
