A loan of $2,425 helped to pay for a new stock of wedding dresses for reselling to customers.


Alina's story

Alina lives in Kapan with her husband and two sons (ages 15 and 3 years old).

Alina's husband teaches at a local school and Alina herself is involved in a retail business. She sells wedding dresses and different goods for wedding parties. Alina has been involved in this retail business for four years already, so she has a number of loyal customers who prefer to use her service.

Alina applied for this loan to be able to purchase a new stock of wedding dresses and supplies for reselling to customers. She has 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 Alina and her small business so she hopes for your support.
