Karine worked as an economist in a building organization until it closed in 1993. Then Karine and her husband rented a space in the Ijevan Central Market and started selling clothing and shoes. For the past 16 years, thanks to her profits, Karine has paid for her daughters’ educations and organized their weddings. A few years ago, with her own income, Karine supplied free sweets -- chocolate, candy, and cakes -- to Ijevan School N4.
Karine already has received nine loans from Nor Horizon. Now she needs a loan of 400,000 AMD to buy winter clothes to sell. She plans to spend the expected income to expand her business and repair her apartment.
