Arman's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

Arman's story

Meet Arman, a young inspiring constructor from Dovegh village. Arman lives with his parents and elderly grandparents in an area considered to be a conflict zone. Along with his father, he is involved in the construction supplies business; he mainly makes tiles from concrete. You can admire the equipment that he uses during his work in the picture.

Starting a business in this area was a risk. However, Arman and his family never stop craving for bigger heights. This little business is their main source of income, and thus they always try to make enhancements to develop it even more.

Having this in mind, Arman applied for financial support. With the provided loan he plans to stock up with needed materials so that he meets the current demand. Arman strongly believes that this will help to increase their income and change the family's living.
