Lena and Her Sisters' Small Business in Armenia

Lena and Her Sister
Lena and Her Sister
Lena is an Armenian from Aleppo. She moved to Armenia with her sisters in 2014 because of the war in Syria. Tricot-knitting had been her occupation for many years. Upon arriving in Yerevan, she continued her career, and in 2016, Lena and her sisters established a small family business.
They founded LENA, a wool-clothing brand that offers unique, high quality sweaters and fashion garments, especially for children. She’s one of a few Syrian Armenian women working with HDIF.
Lena shared, "Having my input in this kind of initiative is very rewarding. Usually, I make woolen home decor and seasonal items. Lucky me many people find them beautiful and that’s the main motivation for me to continue my work."
HDIF has helped Lena expand her collection to include home decor and seasonal items. Today she employs other Syrian Armenian women as a result of the high demand for her quality products. Most Syrian Armenians are based in Yerevan. With their expertise and craftsmanship, they have enhanced the rich cultural fabric of Armenia.
