Sharon Keld's Peace Corps Report from Armenia

As Sharon Keld concludes her latest Peace Corps assignment in Armenia, she has written her thoughts on the experience for the Millennium Challenge Corporation, an independent U.S. foreign aid agency. Sharon writes:
The event that touched me most was a small event honoring Hamazasp
Gabrielyan, the 1,000th borrower under under an activity designed to expand the
accessibility to credit for rural Armenians. With this small loan of
approximately $8,000, Hamazasp will build a new cooling facility that will allow
him to extend his selling season and increase his income. As I listened to his
story, I felt a deep sense of pride and gratitude.
