Viktorya's story

Viktorya is from Ijevan town. She lives with her husband and 25-year-old son.

Viktorya runs a small shop where she sells various products. Viktorya's husband works as a taxi driver and his income is hardly enough for covering the family’s daily costs.

Realizing that her business of running a shop is very important for the family, Viktorya wants to expand it. She has applied for this loan to purchase food products and provide a larger variety for her clients. She 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 Viktorya and she hopes for lenders' support.
