Mayis is 48 years old and lives in Vanadzor city. He lives with his pensioner mother, his wife and two daughters. Mayis has a high pedagogical education and for more than 15 years has worked as a sports teacher in Vanadzor secondary schools. Because his teacher’s salary is low, he decided to run his own business in Vanadzor.

More than one year ago Mayis started a pastry trading activity in the Lori area. He buys candies and cakes from wholesale markets, delivering and reselling it to food shops with his own car. With the profit from his business, Mayis is able to solve his family's needs and take care of his family better than some years ago. He would be very thankful to Kiva lenders if they lent him 500,000 AMD for increasing his merchandise assortment.
