Irina's story

Meet Irina again.

She is an inspiring young teacher from Koghb village, an area considered to be a conflict zone. Due to regional unemployment, she moved to find a job in Yerevan. She wishes to earn a better living and support her parents.

Since early childhood, Irina had a passion for languages and teaching. Thus, she chose this path as her main profession. Irina provides English language courses to school-aged children. In her only one year of experience, the demand for her classes is constantly growing. This is mainly due to her kind and personal approach to every student.

With the previous loan provided through the unselfish support of the Kiva community, Irina purchased a new enhanced notebook. This surely helped to develop her classes and make them even more interactive. Irina applied for this loan to install special software on her computer. She is sure that this step will further help her to attract more students and increase her business income.
