Saleh is a 58-year-old man. He is married and has three children. Saleh has a permanent job in a sugar factory, where he works from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.. His salary as a general worker is too low to cover his family's needs. He comes to work to his shop after 2 p.m. Ten years ago he started to seek new options to make money and an idea about opening a mobile phone shop came into his mind. Now he is a successful entrepreneur and his monthly income is 400 AZN. He hired his son as a salesman and now the mobile phone shop is considered the family business. His store is successful because he has a very good location in the central bazaar. He primarily sells mobile accessories and numbers.
Now he would like to help his son get married and for this purpose he needs more investments in his shop. He applied for 1500 AZN and this will be his third loan. He is a trusted client of AqroInvest and we wish him all the best.
