Malik has always been a hardworking man, who has made sure, from a young age, that his family never goes without their daily bread. He is married with two children. He has a grocery store where he sells different kinds of foodstuffs such as sweets, soft drinks, juices, and other items.
With a starting capital of 200 AZN, he began this enterprise 2 years ago in order to support his children and parents. Today, he needs to buy additional foodstuffs to increase the range of goods he sells. With this purpose in mind, he is requesting a loan of 1,000 AZN. He is ready to work even harder, make sacrifices and push every once and awhile to achieve his goal and become a successful entrepreneur.
