Industry Info

Retail is a quick and scalable way to begin earning a profit. Many entrepreneurs begin with stalls at markets or even at home and need a loan to expand or increase their inventory. Others may be ready to open a small store. Goods purchased from loan funds range from clothing, grocery or sundry items to jewelry, candy, perfume or health and beauty supplies. Loans in the commerce sector account for around 33% of our loans.

Artur's Community

Armenians have their own distinctive alphabet and language. They have a history rich in culture and like to celebrate their heritage. After independence, the importance of agriculture increased. Worries of food insecurities rose during the first phases of transition. Farmers are still limited in their access to credit, markets, training, and new technology.

Located in the southern region of Armenia, Sisian has long, cold winters and cool summers. Traditionally an agricultural region, residents of Sisan were unwillingly involved in conflicts arising from the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. This conflict damaged the economy and the infrastructure as well as creating a heavy psychological toll for those involved.

Today, World Vision has enabled residents to begin addressing essential needs such as access to clean water, nutritious food, quality education, and vocational training.
