A loan of $1,225 helped to buy clothes to sell in the market.


Lena's story

This will be the second loan with Kiva for Lena, who lives in Vanadzor City, in the Tavush region. The first loan she used for the purchase of a winter assortment of clothes and underclothes for her clothes-trading business and the results were great. She is very satisfied with that winter period income and hopes for one more profitable cooperation.

Lena still works at the Vnadzor wholesale market at the rented stall. Her stall merchandise she brings from Yerevan in a rented car, once in a month. She sells men's, women's, and children's clothes of different fashions and sizes. She is happy that she managed to keep and develop her trading business during these 16 years since, through this occupation, she greatly helped her husband to earn their family's living. She also perfectly organized her daughters’ wedding parties. Lena lives with her retired husband, who worked at the furniture factory, but now he receives a pension.

Lena asks for a loan of AMD 500,000 (Armenian drams). Since spring season clothes are already in great demand among her customers, it is high time to renew her stall’s clothes collection and to change it all from winter to spring, full of colors and brightness.
