Ofelya was born in 1958. She is married and has two daughters who are married and live on their own. Ofelya lives with her husband in the town of Ijevan. She worked as an accountant in one of Ijevan's factory for many years prior to its liquidation. Since 2004, she and her husband have made a living selling bouquets and wreaths from stall they rent in the town market. Thanks to the success of this business, Ofelya has been able to repair her house and pay for daughters’ education and weddings. She likes her work because it allows her to hear many romantic stories related to her bouquets. Ofelya has applied for a loan for 900,000 AMD to buy a big lot of flowers from which she will make compositions for sale. She plans to spend the expected income made possible by this loan to enlarge her shop.
