A loan of $1,500 helped to pay for an oven and other equipment for baking cakes.

Natella's story

Natella lives in the town of Yeghegnadzor with her husband, mother-in-law and two school-age children. She bakes cakes and sells them at local markets. Natella is a very hardworking woman and over years of tireless work she developed contracts with some shops who also sell her cakes.

Natella now needs financial support to purchase an oven and other baking equipment. 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 Natella, and she hopes for lenders' support.
