Armen's story

Armen is 39 years-old and he lives in Ijevan city. Armen is married and has three children: two school aged daughters and a three year-old son. His wife stays at home and takes care of their children, while Armen runs a fruit and vegetable shop. With his business income Armen was able to buy a van and now he delivers fruits and vegetables from Yerevan, different villages of Armenia and even from Georgia. He sells his merchandise from his van or from tables and boxes on the street.

Thanks to his business income he meets his family’s needs and has bought necessary furniture for their house. Now Armen is making an emphasis on potatoes and onion trading as his regular customers lay in a stock of these vegetables in winter. Armen is asking for a loan of 350,000 Armenian drams to buy a large lot of oranges, tangerines and lemons to resell before New Year’s holidays.

This is Armen’s second loan both from Kiva and Nor Horizon.
