Jonik's story

Get to know Jonik, a hardworking businessman from Noyemberyan town. He lives with his elderly mother in an area considered to be a conflict zone. Starting a business in this area was risky; however, he never loses hope for a brighter future.

Being the only breadwinner of the family, Jonik provides different kinds of cleaning services (car wash, carpet wash, and chemical cleaning). In his 6 years of experience, he has gained a good amount of loyal clients, and the demand is yet growing.

Jonik applied for financial support to develop his business even more. With the provided loan, he plans to get new cleaning tools and materials, and also a tank to avoid issues with water supply. Jonik is full of hope that these enhancements will help him manage his workflow and attract more clients. He will work hard to achieve his goals and further support his mother's living.
