Artur's story

This is second loan of Artur from Kiva. The first loan helped him to handle training programs in conflict resolution for his students and he has paid it successfully. Artur continuous his work in the university as a lecturer. He needs this loan for publishing the book on this subject which will be used for his course. The loan requested from SEF will help him to cover printing and research costs. Artur has now been approved for a loan within the framework of 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. Artur will be very glad to receive lenders' support and make his dream come true.
