From childhood, Karen was into sports. He was a famous boxer in Vanadzor, and has many titles and prizes from many Armenian and European competitions. But Karen was forced to leave the big sport because of injuries.
About 6 years ago, Karen started in the clothing trading business. He rents a stall in the Vanadzor clothes market, and sells sports clothing and sport uniforms. The merchandise he buys from Yerevan (a large city in Armenia) wholesale markets, and orders uniforms from sewing workshops. With the profit from his sport clothing business, Karen is able to meet his new created family needs and help his parents.
Karen has a big order from Vanadzor sport schools, and needs a loan of 1,000,000 Armenian drams to buy a special sport uniform collection from Yerevan for reselling. Karen hopes to receive a good profit from this order, and decided to save it for his child's good future.
