Hakob's story

Hakob lives in the village of Azatamut in the Gegharkunik region. He is married and has two daughters.

Farming is the main occupation that Hakob and his family are engaged in. They keep two cows, two calves, six piglets and twenty chickens on their farm. Their only income is from farming; it has given Hakob a chance to buy some furniture for their house, and he has managed to buy a car for himself. They also have a plot of land and cultivate greens, tomatoes, cucumbers, potatoes, and some fruits for their family's everyday use.

Hakob says that he loves farming, taking care of animals, and breeding them. He is sure that land cultivation is also of great use for a man; it makes a man kinder and wiser, and happiness has no borders when you gather the harvest so nice, so colorful, and sweet which you have raised by days and nights of working hard.

Hakob wants to enlarge his farm cattle, and he plans to buy one more cow and a lot of animal fodder. He is asking a loan from Kiva lenders, as he is not able to do it himself with his own resources.
