A loan of $1,475 helped repair his taxi.


Yurik's story

Yurik lives in Gugarq village with his wife and son. Yurik is a taxi driver with 5 years’ experience. He works day and night to gather enough income to sustain his family's living. Yurik's wife works at a local music school and helps her husband with family's costs.

Unfortunately, because of financial hardships that Yurik currently faces, he isn't able to renovate his car and continue his taxi driving business. Therefore, he is asking this loan to pay for the renovation of the vehicle and purchase of gasoline.

Yurik 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. So this loan is very important for Yurik and his family, and he hopes for lenders' support.
