Sulaymon's story

Sulaymon is an honest and hard-working man. He is married and has children. Sulaymon raises cattle and, in addition, grows apricots in season. In the summer he harvests apricots, dries them, and sells in winter. But his main source of income is from raising cattle. Many of his friends have left for [the Russian Federation] and encouraged him to go along with them, but Sulaymon does not want to leave his family behind and attempts to make a living in his native country as best he can.

Every month Sulaymon brings cattle to the market for sale, and immediately uses his revenue to buy young cattle. This business brings in a very good income, so Sulaymon tries to keep developing it. For a long time, he has wanted to buy his own [truck] in order to bring cattle to the market more easily. But for now he lacks the means, so at present he plans to increase his headcount. Sulaymon wants to use his loan to buy cattle and expand his business, which will help him continue saving for a truck.
