Armenian small businesses need loans

The best way to help people is thru self help. We always see governments paying to various countries money, and who knows what happens getting lost in bureaucracy. At times you get so much "junk" mail asking for money. You become skeptic as to how much of the money you send, would actually reach those who really need a boost.

Kiva is a unique tool to help those who are willing to help themself and got a clear vision. It's very transparent. You can actually track the progress and repayment.

I checked Armenia to find out if there are small businesses listed and I found list of two pages:
