Sahil has two businesses to support his family. He owns six cattle and runs a taxi-driving service. He has been doing this for about nine years. The members of his family help with the agriculture business. He sells the milk, cheese, yogurt and butter in his village and at the bazaar. His plans for the future are to help each member of his family start their own business.
Sahil is applying for a loan of 1000 Azerbaijani manats (AZN) to help his son to buy musical instruments, to help his eldest son to build a business, and to keep his own business in progress.
