Arpik's story

Arpik is a farmer-woman from Tsaghkalanj village. She lives together with her husband, son, daughter-in-law and two little grandchildren. Arpik owns a greenhouse where she cultivates greens in the winter and tomatoes in the spring. She also keeps 2 pigs and 2 calves. Arpik is a very enthusiastic and hard working woman who does her best to run her farm in a sustainable way and help her husband to sustain their family. Arpik currently asks for this loan in order to enlarge her agribusiness. She hopes for lenders' support to be able to purchase a polyethylene cover for the greenhouse, potato seeds and fertilizers.

As this is her first loan, Arpik has been approved within the framework of the new joint initiative between Kiva and SEF. The first-chance loan program provides loans to people who didn’t have access to credit products in the past because they have no credit history.
