Bluecoat Wealth Management has just made a loan to Armine Khachatryan in Armenia through Kiva.
Armine is married and lives with her mother-in-law. Both Armine and her husband are university graduates, but as they were unable to find a job in their fields, they have started their own business. Armine has been in the clothing trade business since 2004 and her husband helps her by taking care of the bookkeeping. Armine has applied for the loan to purchase autumn clothing stock.
Kiva is an organisation that empowers individuals to lend to an entrepreneur across the globe. By combining microfinance with the internet, Kiva is creating a global community of people connected through lending.
Kiva was born of the following beliefs:
- People are by nature generous, and will help others if given the opportunity to do so in a transparent, accountable way.
- The poor are highly motivated and can be very successful when given an opportunity.
- By connecting people we can create relationships beyond financial transactions, and build a global community expressing support and encouragement of one another.
