Artur's story

Artur is from Armavir town where he lives with his wife and two little children (ages eight and six).

He has been providing welding services to locals for ten years. In order to overcome financial hardships, Artur is also making entry doors for apartments and houses.

Over these ten years of hard and tireless work, Artur has gained a good reputation among locals who value his high quality and devoted work. Now, to be able to serve more clients, Artur needs tools and equipment specified for his work. His current tools are in defective condition, so he requests this loan to enable him to purchase the tools and equipment he needs.

Artur 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.

The loan is very important for Artur to be able to continue his business and provide better living conditions for his beloved family.
