Meri lives in the village of Mec Parni in the Lori region. She is 33 years old. Meri is married and she has two school-aged children. Her husband at this moment is in the Russian Federation. From there, he supports his family financially, while Meri in the village works and runs a farming and agriculture business. Meri graduated from Vanadzor Medical College as a pediatrician. Now she works at the city hospital as a nurse. Simultaneously with her beloved work, she runs the farm. On her farm, she takes care of three cows and two calves. From her plot of land, she gathers a perfect harvest of potatoes, which re-sellers buy right from her house. As Meri says, she is happy in her sunny village with her family and cute farm, but she dreams of making it richer.

She is asking for a loan of 600.000 Armenian drams in order to buy several beehives and some tools for working with the hives. She wants to have pure and healing honey from her farm, which will be very useful both for her children and profitable to sell as well.
