Support Through Agribusiness – Nor Kharpert
END DATE One month from start date
Many of Armenia's small villages, towns and communities have a low average annual income and high levels of unemployment. Often time villagers have a difficult time financially providing for their families due to the lack of work. The establishment of small commercial enterprises for families proved to be a model that has worked to increase household income and help develop the village's economy.
Sponsorship of this project will help provide needy villagers with the opportunity to care for their families and to help improve the village's economy.
The Karapetyan family has been identified as one of the families who are in need of additional support. Their family consists of six members including Hasmik, her husband who has become disabled due to a car accident, and their four children. They live in poverty as neither parent is able to work. In order to help this family get back on their feet, they will be set up with a small agribusiness. As a part of this effort the Karapetyan family will be provided training and/or business tips for the ensured success of their venture. Frequent visits will be made to the family to track their progress and determine the success of their new agribusiness.
