Victr Badalyan loves his work. He is an expert beekeeper who uses his education in mathematics to advance his business. His goal for the future is to grow his business to Australia, so he can keep bees all year long. For now, though, he is happy with his business in the hills outside Vardenik, Armenia. When Victr needed some help to grow his harvests and sell his honey, the Near East Foundation, Business Paretta, and Gegharkunik Chamber of Commerce and Industry responded with a no-interest loan and business training to get his new innovations off the ground.
