Artsruni's story

Artsruni is 47 years old. He lives in Vardablur village, in the Lori area. He is married and has two sons: his elder son is studying at an institute in Russia, and his younger son is a pupil. Artsruni and his wife are teachers and they both work at a village school. As well as his work at school, Artsruni has run his own shop more than ten years. In his shop he sells food and household goods. He buys wares from providers.
Artsruni says that his teacher’s salary is not enough to support his family, so his business allows him to provide his family with everything necessary. As trade before holidays is very active, Artsruni intends to increase his shop's assortment of goods. Therefore, he is asking for an 800,000 AMD loan to buy a large quantity of beverages, dairy foods, flour, sugar and various household goods for his shop.
