Gohar's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to pay for chairs, a desk and cabinet and also a laptop for better organized teaching process.

Gohar's story

Gohar is math teacher working at a local school in Gyumri town for many years. Her daughter is married and lives separately and Gohar is with her son, husband and mother-in-law.
After her work ends at school, Gohar receives students in her house and provides them with individual courses in math.
She has no separate room for working with her students and it is very difficult. Gohar asks this loan to purchase chairs, a desk and cabinet and also a laptop for a better organized teaching process. This loan will be a big support for Gohar's work as a teacher.

She has now been approved for a loan within the framework of the 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.
