Armen's story

Armen and his lovely family live in the village of Tsovagyugh in the Sevan area. Armen is married and he has two children already. His wife takes care of them. He owns a shop, where he sells spare car parts.

Armen is among those people that already once have had a chance to experience that Kiva lenders truly provide help and humanity to those who really need it. By the help of his first Kiva loan, Armen managed to adapt and repair part of his shop for a household goods trading organization, and to buy merchandise for it.

This time Armen needs a loan of 900,000 Armenian drams to renew the assortment of goods in his shop and to buy car wheels. He will try to see what kind of income it will bring, since his family has become bigger and financial drains have become greater.
