Negmatjon has been engaged in business for over 6 years. He is married and has 2 children and his wife is a teacher. Negmatjon is well-educated but has not been able to find a good job. He therefore decided to sell office supplies in his friend's shop. His friend employed Negmatjon as a seller and gave him the opportunity to sell his own goods as well. Negmatjon bought these goods from a wholesale market in Tashkent, Uzbekistan. Gradually, Negmatjon was able to increase the turnover of his working capital and by 2006, he saved enough money to open his own shop.
Negmatjon became a client of Micro Invest in 2007. With their loans, he was able to expand the range of goods he sold. His business is now located in the center of Panjshanbe market. Today he has many clients and always tries to meet their needs. He is now requesting a $1,200 loan to buy school supplies for his store.
