Gohar, age 49, operates a business selling convenience foodstuffs. She has been engaged in this venture since 1995. She is a graduate of Yerevan State Industrial College and worked for many years as a technician in factories in Sevan city. However, after the collapse of the Soviet Union, Armenia was in difficult economic conditions. This is when Gohar decided to launch her own business. Her shop is in a remote area of Sevan city where there are few other shops, and this is why she has so many clients. Her business is going well and she is very pleased.

Gohar lives in Sevan city with her husband and their two daughters. Her husband travels to the Russian Federation when seasonal work is available. Her eldest daughter is a teacher, and the younger daughter is a student at Yerevan State University, studying in the department of philology.

Gohar is requesting a loan in the amount of 400,000 Armenian drams, which she will use to add fresh vegetables and fruits to her inventory. Gohar believes that her clients' time is valuable and that they will respond favorably to the convenience of being able to buy their fruits and vegetables at her store.

She is confident that she will receive a good profit from this new activity.
