Karlen's story

Karlen was born in and still lives in the sunny and beautiful village of Artsvanik, which is in the Syunik region of Armenia. He has higher technical education and now works at the Kajaran Copper Molybdenum Combine as an engineer.

Karlen is married, and he lives with his wife and son. His elder son is married and lives with his own family separately.

From an early age, Karlen has been involved in agriculture and farming. He owns a plot of land and some farm animals. Karlen cultivates crops and a large variety of vegetables: potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, radish and greens. He receives a decent income from selling his garden harvest, meat and milk to re-sellers at the cities of Kapan and Kajaran. Karlen also breeds from his two cows, two bulls, two calves, a horse and ten chickens.

Karlen has requested a loan of 1,100,000 AMD to buy animal fodder and fertilizer. He hopes that Kiva lenders will help him as well as many other farmers who have had a great success by the help of given loans.
