Karine's story

28 year-old Karine started her own business in 2010. With two years of legal experience, she rented some space and opened her own small law office. Karine works on relatively small cases, but hopes that the experience she gains will enable her to expand her business in the future. Karine doesn't take days off and works late into the evening. Thanks to her business, she has the opportunity to support her young family, which consists of an unemployed husband and a one year-old daughter. Karine was born in Kapan and after finishing high school, graduated with a major in law from the Russian State University of Trade and Economics in Piatigorsk, Russia. Karine needs a loan in the amount of $730 to buy office furniture, a printer, and a computer for her office.
