Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

Susanna's story

Susanna was born and lives in Vanadzor city. She is 55 years old. Susanna is a single mother and has a son who now is serving in the Armenian Army. After graduating from school, Susanna worked in different plants in Vanadzor. She had a hard live and raised her son alone. After the Soviet Union period, Susanna ran her own clothes trading business in Vanadzor. She now rents a stall in a one of the biggest Trading Centers in Vanadzor and resells womens clothing, which she buys from Yerevan wholesale markets.

Trading business challenging for a single woman, but she does it with her great pleasure and she receives enough money to provide for her small family. Susanna hopes that after her son’s military service, she will be not alone in her hard but profitable business and hopes to develop her trading together with her son.
