Garik's story

Garik is 37-years-old and he lives in Yerevan. Garik is married and he has two school-aged sons and both of them are sportsmen. Garik has higher education and he graduated the Agricultural Academy. His specialty is as a builder and architect. It is already eight years that Garik is running his own business. He has a workshop and he, with the help of his father and wife, produces cutlets, kebabs, pelmeni (a Russian national dish made of meat and dough) and khinkali (a Georgian national dish also made of meat and dough and with some spices). All these products Garik distributes to different food markets, supermarkets and he says that he also has orders from restaurants. The main product that he needs is meat that he buys from local butchers or he drives to nearby villages and brings the meat from there. Garik says that his business is thriving and his orders have increased, so he already wants to hire several workers and a cook, so he has asked a loan of 3000 US dollars in order to enlarge his workshop so he work faster and more productively.
