Araqsi's story

Araqsi lives with her husband in Masis town. Last year, Araqsi started to provide designing services to locals. She makes table designs for different ceremonies such as birthdays, weddings, and baptisms. Due to Araqsi's hard work, customers value her work much. Together with her designing service, Araqsi is working at a local kindergarten as a tutor. The income that she gets is very important to cover her family's basic costs. Now, because of difficult financial conditions, Araqsi isn't able to purchase materials to provide designs for new orders that she currently has. Araqsi is asking for this loan and 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 Araqsi and she will be very grateful to all lenders.
