A loan of $1,250 helped to buy a new collection of winter clothes for her business to increase the family's income.


Alina's story

Alina lives in Ijevan city, which is in Tavush region. She is married and her son and daughter are students at the Yerevan State University, Ijevan branch. Several years ago, Alina used to work as an accountant at the combine, but for the past 18 years, she has provided for her family's needs through her clothes trading business. Her husband, who is now in the Russian Federation for work abroad, also does his best to earn for their family. Nevertheless, a major part of their family's income is from Alina's business. She rents a stall at the city wholesale market, where she sells men's and women's clothes and shoes. As she says, she has many loyal customers, who even make orders for some clothes and at the end of each month she brings them from the Yerevan city wholesale market.

This will be Alina's second loan from Kiva. She has paid back the first loan conscientiously and ahead of the repayment schedule. This time, she asks for a loan of 500,000 AMD in order to buy a new collection of winter clothes for her business to increase the family's income.
