Small Businesses Supported by ASF

ASF is proud to announce that we have supported over 50 small and medium-sized businesses in Armenia. These businesses received the "ASF Small Business Support Grant" which allowed the businesses to get back on their feet and provide for the community. 

These businesses used their financial grants to pay back salaries (keeping people employed), rent (keeping storefronts open), and materials (keeping businesses running). In this way, with the difficulties of the COVID-19 pandemic, these businesses were still able to operate and ensure economic prosperity in Armenia. 

This has been an incredibly difficult year for many businesses in Armenia and ASF is glad that, with the help of our donors, we were able to help support them.
