Gevorg is running the agricultural business for the family. They own two dairy cows and 30 sheep. Gevorg sells milk and produces cheese, with the sheep milk for selling as well.

He is very hard-working and experienced farmer with a great desire to enlarge his farm and generate more income. He has requested credit to purchase an additional 30 sheep. He will produce more cheese with their milk and increase profits.

In the future, Gevorg plans to reinvest part of the income in his sheep-breeding business for its further development. The other part of the increased income will be used to improve the daily living conditions of the family
