A loan of $1,475 helped to pay for tools and equipment for stone workshop.


Sargis's story

Sargis has been involved in this stone workshop for five years. He is a stone abrasive worker and is already very skilled in that sphere. Sargis lives with his parents, wife, and two little children. He works hard to sustain his family's living and provide them appropriate living conditions.

Now this hardworking and honest man needs financial support. With this loan's help, Sargis will be able to purchase tools and equipment for his stone workshop and gather more income. As the current machines in the workshop are already very old and needs to be replaced with new ones, this loan will greatly assist Sargis. He hopes for lenders' support.

Sargis has been approved for a loan within the framework of a new joint initiative between Kiva and SEF international. The start-up loan program provides business start-up loans with soft conditions to informal businesses that do not have access to credit products.
