Nasimi says the secret of his success is his shop's location, on the central bazaar. Nasimi's monthly income is 230 AZN, which is not enough to cover his family's needs. He has applied for a loan of 800 AZN to expand his business. He will use this loan to purchase new merchandise and diversify. He has good credit history and this will be his second loan.
