Babken studies in the Correspondence Courses at the Teachers-training College in Yerevan. Parallel to studying he has his own business, which consists of lavash (Armenian bread) production and sales. The bakery is in the family’s private house. Babken and his father have been running this business for five years, and they now employ a staff of two.
Babken needs US$ 3,000 for wholesale purchase of flour. Babken wants to use one part of the flour in his business and the other part he wants to resell. With the income for his business, Babken hopes to increase his sales and pay for his studies.
