Ikromjon lives in the Shahrituz region, which is located in the south-western area of Tajikistan. He is 28 years old, married, and has 2 children, a son and a daughter. His wife sells almonds for a living. Until now, Ikromjon has sometimes worked providing home repairs, and has sometimes gone to Russia to earn wages. Now he wants to start his own business. He has chosen to get into animal husbandry because the climate in his home region is very conducive to raising cattle. For this reason, he is now seeking a loan so he can begin buying and selling cows. He plans to use the income generated by his new business to host a ceremony for his son's circumcision.

С этим намерением Икромчон обратился за кредитом. Он просит кредит для купли и продажи крупно-рогатого скота. За счет прибыли с новой деятельности Икромчон планирует провести торжество по случаю обрезания сына.
