Seyran's story

Seyran, age 45, is a trader in fruits and vegetables. He buys fruits and vegetables from villages in the Tavush region and sells these in his rented stall at the Ijevan food market. Specifically, Seyran sells onions, cabbage, carrots, potatoes, citrus fruits, and greens, all of which he transports via his own car.

Seyran is the only breadwinner in his family, and the profit from his trading business allows him to meet his family needs. He lives with his wife and their son and daughter in Ijevan city.

For a long time, Seyran used to work as an auto repairman in the Tavush region, but after the collapse of the Soviet Union, he worked in the Russian Federation and supported his family from abroad. About a year ago, Seyran returned to his motherland and started his own trading business.

Seyran is requesting 300,000 Armenian drams from Kiva lenders in order to expand his offerings to include large quantities of tropical fruits, citrus fruits, apples, pears, and bananas.
