Arshak lives with his mother in Vanadzor town. He earns their living by providing retail service to local stores and individuals. Arshak owns a truck through which he purchases different goods (housing, food, etc.) from Yerevan town and resells it to local small stores of Vanadzor town. Arshak is a very enthusiastic and hard working young man who does his best to ensure a better life for his mother.

Now to be able to purchase new stock of supplies and cover his current orders, Arshak needs financial support. He has now been approved for a 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 will greatly help Arshak and he hopes for lenders' support.
