Liana's story

Liana was born and lives in the city of Kapan of the Siyunik district. She studied to become an economist at the Kapan construction college. Liana got married at an early age. Liana is now 37 years old and a widow; her husband died in a car accident. Liana has a son, who lives with her along with her parents. Liana's mother is ill, and father teaches at the Kapan construction college. Because Liana is raising her son by herself, she does everything to make sure that he grows up to be a deserving citizen of his country, obtains good education and lives happily and without difficulties. After her husband's death, Liana opened her own business and has been selling food products, clothing and dishware in a leased store in Kapan for almost four years. Once a month, she buys merchandise at wholesale markets in Yerevan and resells it at her store in Kapan. She already has many customers, who prefer to buy clothing, dishware and kitchen accessories from Liana's store. She is very happy that her hard work can support her family, help her father with the household and pay for her ill mother's treatment. Liana worked with Kiva in 2009, and this is her second loan, with which help she wants to purchase a large inventory of spring merchandise from Yerevan and many kitchen accessories and dishware. A large Christian holiday of Easter is coming up, and she hopes to make a good profit from holiday sales.
