Artur is 34 years old and he lives in Ijevan, which is a city in the Tavush region. Artur is married and he has two sons who are school-aged. He lives with his parents and grandmother. Artur’s father regularly goes to the Russian Federation where he performs different constructional works and transfers some of his earnings to his family members. Artur’s mother works at home where she makes very tasty cakes and different pastries.

Artur for several years worked at a poultry farm as a delivery person, and then for five years he worked as a driver at a private company. Now with his own car, he provides taxi services. Despite his work, this young man is also seriously engaged in swine breeding and agriculture. In his farm, he has five piglets, 30 chickens, two beehives and a large fruit garden where he has many apple and persimmon trees. His mother uses the farm eggs for her small pastry business. Thanks to his hardworking and active character, Atur manages to have good yield. From his farm, he also sells meat and fruits. Artur wants to enlarge his farm and so he decided to ask for a loan from Kiva lenders.

He asks for a loan of 1,000,000 AMD in order to buy two new pigs and fodder for his pigs as well as chickens for his farm.
