Artur's story

Artur is from Gyumri town where he lives with his parents, grandmother, wife and two little children. As the only breadwinner of the family Artur works day and night earning income to cover his family's expenses. He has been running a small business for several years. He owns a small oven where he cooks pork and sells it to locals. Now, because of financial difficulties that the family currently faces, Artur lacks financial means to renovate his oven. He has requested this loan to purchase meat and renovate the oven. Artur 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. The loan is very important for Artur to be able to increase his capital and provide better service to his customers. Artur hopes for your support.
