Vahe is from Armavir town where he lives with his parents. He has been involved in a retail business for many years and is the only breadwinner in his family. Vahe owns a truck which he uses to transport and sell different stones. Unfortunately, Vahe's truck is currently out of use, because its tires are too old. He has requested this loan to purchase 6 new tires so that he can continue his retail business. Vahe has been approved for the loan within the framework of a new joint initiative between Kiva and SEF International. The start-up loan program provides business start-up loans with soft conditions to informal businesses that do not have access to credit products. The loan is very important for Vahe and he hopes for lenders' support.
