Vigen has worked in one of the Armenian construction companies as a builder, but his salary was very low, and he couldn't cover even his own costs. So, he decided to create his own business.

He built on his property a shop where he has run a fish-trading business up to now. This activity was profitable and soon he expanded the volume of his sales. Vigen has many clients in Ijevan city and receives much profit. Now Vigen is a successful young businessman.

Vigen is 25 years old and lives in Ijevan city with his parents and sister. His mother and sister don't work. Vigen’s father helps him in his trading occupation. Vigen and his father transfer the fish from Ejmiadzin city with their own car and resell it in their fish shop. With income from the fish-trading business, Vigen supports his family’s needs; he has bought furniture and some electronics.

A Kiva loan will help Vigen to construct the second floor of his shop. He wants to expand his business more and hopes to receive more profit from his business.
