At the same time, Agapi and her family are engaged in farming. They breed cows and pigs and grow vegetables in their garden. Agapi says that to meet family needs just with their salary is very hard so they must work hard day and night to sustain their family. Agapi likes farming and does that occupation with pleasure. The agricultural products Agapi’s father sells in Ijevan food markets. Agapi and her family are asking from Kiva lenders a loan of 1,100,000 Armenian drams to buy four young cows and hope to receive more profit from their animal breeding.
