Annagi J. is 22 but he has kept his business since he was 18. He rents a place where he sells building and repair materials. He is continuing the business of his father. Annagi started to help his father when he was 16 and since that time, he gained enough experience to run this business alone now.
Annagi requested 1,600 Azerbaijani New Manat to increase the number of items he sells. Annagi's dream is to build his own shop one day.
