A loan of $625 helped to buy raw materials for his business and to start making shoes to sell.


Mayis's story

Mayis, 49 years old, lives in the city of Vanadzor, located in the Lory region. He lives with his wife and a son; his daughter is already married and lives separately with her family.

Mayis has been a shoemaker for eight years, working in a small booth near their building. He repairs shoes, and all of his clients are very satisfied with his fast and accurate work. He is now requesting a 250.000 AMD loan to buy raw materials (leather, soles, etc.) for his work, and he also intends to start making shoes and selling them right from his booth.

Mayis hopes very much that Kiva lenders will appreciate his efforts and help him to realize his plans.
