A loan of $2,000 helped to pay for a pig, forage for pigs, potato seeds and renovation of the greenhouse.

Suzanna's story

Suzanna is from Hovtashen village where she lives with her husband and two little daughters (ages 5 and 3-years-old). Her husband and Suzanna have been engaged in agriculture for 10 years. They keep a mother pig, 18 piglets and 30 chickens. Suzanna also grows peach, apricot and pear trees. The couple work hard as agriculture is the main source of their family's income. They also own greenhouse which is too old and they are unable to organize cultivation there. So now, Suzanna applied for this loan to renovate the greenhouse and also purchase a pig, forage for feeding the livestock and potato seeds. The loan will be a huge support for their farm.

As this is Suzanna's first loan, 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.
