Tigran and his family live in the village Tsovazard which is in the Gavar area. Tigran is married and has two children. His wife is unemployed, and she takes care of their sons. For several years, Tigran worked abroad in the Russian Federation where he engaged in building and reconstructing work. During that time, he was working hard to support his family financially, but being so far from his family was very difficult for him so he came back and he and his wife became engaged in farming together. They have two cows, two bulls, two heifers, two calves, eight sheep, and two pigs. Tigran plans to begin selling a lot of dairy products from their house so he needs to increase the number of cattle on his farm.
He asks for a loan of 900,000 Armenian drams to buy several calves and fodder for his animals. He will be very grateful to Kiva lenders if they are willing to support him.
