Hamazasp's story

Hamazasp is from Gyumri town. He is the priest of the St. Jacob Church where he performs wedding and funeral rites. In the basement of the church, Hamazasp is also providing lessons in foreign languages, computers and art for children for free. Due to his kind attitude toward children, he has a large number of students who come to the church with great love and pleasure. Hamazasp is also a beloved father of three children. To purchase chairs, a table, and two computers, Hamazasp needs financial support. As the place where he teaches does not have sufficient conditions for children, he wants to improve it. Hamazasp has now 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. So the loan will greatly assist Hamazasp to continue his social mission.
