Hovhannes's story

Hovhannes is 54 years old. He lives with his wife and his retired father in the city of Kapan. Hovhannes has two daughters, both are married and live separately from their parents with their families. Hovhannes is a soldier and works in the Armenian Armed Services.

In his free time, Hovhannes works in agriculture and raises poultry. He has a plot of land and a fruit orchard where he grows vegetables and fruits. Hovhannes has a big coop next to his house and keeps his chickens, geese and ducks there. Hovhannes sells his crops to wholesalers right from his house, which is more convenient than selling them at the market.

His wife helps him a lot with the farm, she takes care of the birds with great pleasure. As she says, it is not easy to take care of birds and you need to know the particulars of raising poultry and love this job.

Hovhannes decided to expand his poultry business and he especially would like to increase the number of ducks and geese. This is why Hovhannes need a loan of 350,000 Armenian dram for the purchase of 20 geese, 20 ducks and bird feed.
