Lusine is 36 years old. Lusine is married and lives with her two daughters in Vanadzor city. Her husband is in the Russian Federation working abroad. Lusine graduated from State Vanadzor Medical College. After graduating, she started working in Vanadzor hospital as a nurse. As her salary from the hospital is low, she decided to run her own business and started her clothes business. After her work in the hospital, Lusine sells women and children's clothes, which she buys from Yerevan clothes wholesale markets. She sells clothes from her house and she doesn't need any rental place in order to sell clothes.

As Lusine confessed, without trading clothes, she couldn't sustain her family. From time to time, her husband helps Lusine from Russia to meet his family's needs in Armenia. Lusine has been engaged in clothes trading for about three years and now she has a lot of clients in Vanadzor. Her clients are her neighbors, colleagues and patients from the Lori region.

Lusine has a big order from her clients and she needs a loan to buy women and children's clothes from Yerevan in order to resell them in Vanadzor. From this deal, she hopes to receive a good profit and to cooperate with Kiva again in the future.
