Mnacakan has no higher education and for many years the only way of providing for his family financially was doing construction work abroad (in the Russian Federation). During the period that he worked abroad, the nice and rich orchard of apricot trees that his father had planted dried up since his parents were old and could not take care of it.
Since now Mnacakan has his own family, he decided never to leave his village again and also to restore their beautiful orchard. He hopes that after two or three years, he will have the sweetest and the best harvest of apricots as it used to be when he was a little boy and his father took care of those trees.
Mnacakan requests a loan in an amount of 1,200 US dollars in order to start restoring his apricot orchard (to clean and to mold the soil, plant new tress, organize its watering system, etc.).
