Artur's story

Artur is from Norapat village of Armavir region. He is married and has a 4-year-old daughter. It has already been 5 years Artur that has been earning his family's living by his retail business. He purchases fruits and vegetables from local villagers and using his truck, he transports them to neighboring villages and cities for reselling. Due to his hard and tireless work, Artur is able to sustain his family's basic costs. Unfortunately, now the truck through which Artur transports products is in a nonworking condition. Artur needs financial support to be able to purchase tires for the truck and to be able to continue his retail business. He 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 to Artur and he hopes for lenders' support.
