Alsad is 45 years old and has three children. He is very hard-working person, because it requires continuous effort to take care of a family of five people. Alsad is working in a service sector business. He has a lot of experience of dealing with many customers.
Alsad has been managing a small restaurant in the central market. In this restaurant, he serves several dishes, such as kebabs, soups and other traditional foods. He has been working in this sector for ten years. He says the service sector is a very delicate area, because people always pay attention to how they are being served.
This is Alsad’s second time applying for loan in Aqroinvest. He is requesting a loan of 1,600 AZN. With this loan he plans to buy more dishes, chairs and a few tables. He is really optimistic about this loans positive effects, because he believes that more customers are enjoying dining out recently.
