A loan of $725 helped to buy a new modern grinder for his floor grinding business.

Gagik's story

Gagik, 41, lives in Vanadzor city with his wife and two sons. He graduated from technical school in the robotics department. However, as he never found work in this profession, after graduating he found that cooking was more attractive for him and for a long time he worked as a cook in many restaurants in Vanadzor city.

After some time, he became jobless and in order to sustain his family, he started to work as a floor grinder. In a short time, he gained good repute in this occupation and now he has many clients from Vanadzor and the nearest villages of Lori region. He has been engaged in floor grinding for more than 10 years.

With the profits from grinding, Gagik is able to meet his family's needs as well as possible. As with many of Vanadzor’s dwellers, he doesn't want to leave his motherland to work abroad. He prefers to stay in Armenia and hopes that the social and economic state in his city will go well in the near future.

Gagik is asking Kiva lenders for a loan of 300,000 Armenian drams to buy a new modern grinder so that he will be able to work more comfortably.
