Gurban is a 37-year-old married man with two children ages 10 and 16. He lives with his parents, and they are pensioners. He is trying his best to earn extra income for the family and enhance their way of living. Gurban started working as a vehicle repairer eight years ago. He learned this profession through many years of experience, and he is always improving his craft. His eldest son helps him with his work. The reason he requested the loan is to develop his business. He decided to buy a very old car, reassemble it, and resell it for a good price. The profit will be used to purchase the needed metal supplies to carry on his work in a proper way, to stand firm in the world of business, and to be a good example for his sons.
