A loan of $375 helped to buy picture frames and other souvenirs to expand the selection in her shop.


Amalya's story

Amalya still rents the shop where she sells flowers, candles, fancy boxes, bags, house plants and other small souvenirs. Due to her first loan from Kiva she had made successful purchases and her business profit has greatly increased. Encouraged by that successful purchase she decided to request a new loan of 150,000 Armenian drams for buying picture frames and other souvenirs. She will resell them for Valentine’s Day which is very popular in Armenia. But on February 13, before Valentine's Day, Armenians celebrate another national holiday – Terendez (An Armenian ancient holiday somewhat like the Russian Maslennitsa and Valentine’s Day because its main participants are young couples).
