Zaruhi's story

Zaruhi is young farmer from the Yenoqavan village of the Tavush region. She lives with her husband, parents-in-law and 2-year-old daughter. Her whole family works hard to earn a living.

They are involved in cattle breeding, aviculture, and in the cultivation of haricot, cucumbers and potatoes. Her husband helps her realize the agricultural products in the local market, which is a very important source of income for them.

To continue running her agribusiness in a sustainable way, Zaruhi needs a loan of1,000 USD to renovate the barn and to purchase 5 piglets and forage for the livestock. She and her family highly rely on the goodwill of the lenders and will be thankful to them for the support in collecting the needed loan to maintain and develop their agribusiness.

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