A loan of $2,500 helped to buy gold for his business.


Serob's story

Serob A. lives in Yerevan. He is 26 years old and lives with his wife and his baby. From 2005 to 2008, Serob was a minibus driver. As his work wasn’t profitable, Serob decided to change his profession. For about 2 years, Serob has engaged in jewelry production.
Serob is a private entrepreneur renting a workshop and stall in one of the biggest jewelry markets in Yerevan. He makes and sells his jewelry there. Thanks to the profit from his business, Serob can meet his young family's needs, and buy new furniture and household appliances for his apartment.
Serob asks for a $2500 loan to buy gold for his business because prices for gold are going up in gold markets now. He hopes the loan will help him to increase his profit in future.
