For about 7 years Silva has been engaged in trading women's clothing. On weekdays she trades clothes in a rented place in “Surmalu” market, and on weekends at night she runs her business in “Hrazdan” market (where villagers come for wholesale purchases to resell).
At her stalls she sells tracksuits, dressing gowns, and house suits, which she purchases from Syria and Turkey twice a month.
Silva's husband helps her a lot at her business, and they support their family and their son's young family, because Silva's son is a singer and he doesn't earn a lot of money yet.
Silva intends to use part of her business profit to purchase merchandise from China in the future, as it is more profitable (Silva says in China clothes are cheaper than in Syria and Turkey).
Silva is asking for a $2,500 loan to buy a new assortment for her business: blouses, sweaters, etc.
