After moving to Russia in 2000, he worked as an advisor for SME business development at the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), as the deputy CEO at KMB Bank (today, Banca Intesa), and the vice president at MDM Bank.
He was one of the originators of the small business microfinancing market in central Asia. In 2008, he founded Mikro Kapital Group, whose activities are focused exclusively on SME microfinancing.
