Anna’s husband works at the sanatorium; her elder son and second son work as a food suppliers; and her smallest son is still school-aged. Despite all of the grown-up men in her family being employed, Anna’s financial support from her small business is great. At the Vanadzor wholesale market, she rents a cute stall where she sells curtains, covers and towels. She has been in this business for six years, and she says that she has a number of loyal customers who do shopping from her stall regularly.
Now, Anna, with the coming of spring, wants to renew her stall assortment with new, colorful and nice products and materials, and she also wants to buy some children's clothes to try to sell as well, with the hope of some more income for her big family.
