Levon's story

Levon was born in 1957 in Ijevan City. He is married and has three children: two daughters and a son. His son is school-aged, one daughter is a student, and his elder daughter graduated from the institute two years ago but is still jobless.

For 12 years Levon worked as a warehouse manager at Ijevan's building administration. After that he moved from Armenia to Russia, but in 2000 he returned to his native land and organized his own food and household goods business. During these years, with income from his business, Levon was able to support his family and pay for his daughters’ education.

With his first Kiva loan, Levon increased the assortment of goods in his shop. Thanks to income from his business, Levon built on an additional storey of his shop and also was able to roof it. But he hasn’t made interior repairs of that additional storey yet. Also Levon has partitioned off a part of his shop, where he has placed three computers and has started to manage an internet-cafe. That fact allows him to increase his profit from his businesses.

Now Levon is seeking a 1,000,000 AMD loan to increase his shop assortment before the New Year’s holidays. With his loan he will buy beverages and foods, candy, confectionery, sausages, etc. for his shop. His future income will be spent to make interior repair of the additional storey of his shop and to move his new internet-cafe to that storey.
