Agribusiness on the Border 5: Juleta H. Family
Nerkin Karmir Aghbyur is an important border village with a population of 1,380 residents in the Bert area of Armenia’s Tavush Region. This community, whose territory connects with Azerbaijan, lives and works under a constant risk of sniper fire and renewed armed conflict each day. The economy of the village and the livelihood of many of its residents has suffered due to these difficult and dangerous times. It is of strategic importance to support these villagers in their daily lives so that they may remain inhabitants of this village, mere footsteps from Azerbaijan. With the help of Jean-Marie and Lori Atamian of New York, The Paros Foundation has already renovated their medical center and kindergarten successfully. These projects have had a huge impact on the community. Now, economic development and opportunities for work are essential to continue improving the conditions in this border village. 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.
Juleta H. and her family have been identified as one of the families who are in need of additional support in order to help their agribusiness grow. Their family consists of seven members including Juleta, her husband, their four children (all under the age of 12) and the children’s grandmother. They live in a dangerous area as their home (measuring 1292 sq. ft.) is exposed to Azeri sniper fire. They currently have a barn (measuring 269 sq. ft.) and two cows, and have requested sows and chickens. As a part of this effort Juleta and his family will be provided training and/or business tips for the ensured success of their agribusiness. Frequent visits will be made to the family to track their progress and determine the success of their new venture.
Thank you to all our donors, we have met our fundraising goal.

Juliet's family received the animals they requested for their agribusiness.
One of their pigs has yielded 17 piglets in one year and they currently still have 10 of them. Their cow also had a calf.
