Sevak is from Norapat village of the Armavir region. It has already been 10 years that Sevak has been involved in furniture making. In the basement of his house, Sevak makes different types of furniture (bed, sofa, chairs, desks, etc).

He works hard to satisfy his clients' needs, and due to his attentive and hard work, he has a number of customers from the whole region. Now, because of the coming holidays, the number of orders has increased, and with his current materials, Sevak isn't able to complete them. He is asking for this loan to be able to purchase materials and tools needed for his work. 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.

Sevak will be very grateful to Kiva lenders for the support.
