Ishkhan is 36 years old. He lives with his wife and child in their own house in Vanadzor city. After school and military service, Ishkhan used to be a worker in Vanadzor.

About six years ago, Ishkhan became engaged in shoes trading. He rents a stall in Vanadzor’s clothes markets and sells men's shoes. Ishkhan buys the merchandise from Yerevan wholesale markets and shoe manufacturing shops. He is the only bread winner in his family. His wife takes care of their little child and does not work outside the home. Ishkhan says that to find a good job in Vanadzor is too hard and he is happy that he is able to take care of his family's needs with his trading help.

Ishkhan is asking Kiva lenders for a loan to buy a new summer shoe collection from Yerevan for resale in his stall. He hopes to earn a good profit and to save some money for his little child’s future.
