Seda is 56 years old. She is a widow and lives with her son in Lchashen village, which is in the Sevan area. Seda has a higher education. She is an aviarist (poultry) operator. For a long time, Seda has worked as a worker in many factories in the Sevan region but after Soviet Union collapsed, she became jobless. She had a hard and difficult life and after her husband died, she raised her son alone.

Since 2004, Seda and her son have been running their own agricultural business. They are engaged in swine-breeding. Seda has built a large barn for pigs and breeds them in her village. They have 30 pigs. Seda says that swine-breeding is a very profitable branch of animal breeding but at the same time, very hard and difficult. As she confessed, you must just love your occupation and after that, it will bring you good profit.

Seda asks from Kiva lenders a loan of 500,000 Armenian drams to buy a large amount of fodder for her pigs.
