Sonya's story

Sonya is 59 years old. She is a widow and lives in Yerevan with her son, daughter-in-law and three grandchildren. She has a high school education and 26 years of experience as a mathematics teacher.

After retiring on a pension, Sonya refused to be out of work, and more than ten years ago she decided to organize her own business selling women's clothes and underwear. She rents a stall in the trade market in Yerevan and buys merchandise from neighboring countries by herself. Due to her income from her business, she shares the family's expenses with her son.

Sonya says she likes her present business very much, and she is very happy that she is employed at her age.

Sonya received loans from Nor Horizon eleven times without repayment delay. This is now her third loan through Kiva. With her previous Kiva loans Sonya bought various swimsuits for her business.

Before the New Year’s holidays Sonya intends to buy winter and holiday clothes to resell. Therefore, she is seeking a 700,000 AMD loan.
