Hamlet was born in 1959. He is married and lives in Noyemberyan city, Tavush region, not far from Ijevan city. His family consists of his wife, who works as a librarian, and two school-aged daughters.

For about 20 years, Hamlet worked as a mechanical engineer in one of Abovyan's city factories, but since 2003 he has been trading in jewelry and souvenirs. With the income from his business, Hamlet supports his family and has been able to buy new furniture for his house and improve his family's living conditions.

Recently Hamlet diversified his business: now he sells not only jewelry and souvenirs, but also sunglasses.

Hamlet intends to buy his own place for his business, which will reduce his business expenses. He says that, thanks to his business income, he has already saved some money to buy a small stall.

Hamlet is asking for a 1,000,000 AMD loan to buy an assortment of jewelry and to buy vases, photo frames, tea and coffee to sell. He plans to add future income to his saved money. Hamlet hopes to buy his own place very soon.

This is Hamlet's second loan from Kiva.
