Sadiq's story

Sadiq U. is young and married. This resident of the Ningarhar has three children; they are small and don’t go to school yet. Sadiq and his family have returned from two decades of living as refugees in neighboring Pakistan. The young man studied in Pakistan in a private school and his father used to work in a general store.

Upon repatriation the family has faced various financial problems, pushing the young man to leave off the pursuit of his education and help his father to support their family. Unfortunately, his father has been getting weaker day by day, as he has had some serious illnesses. Sadiq U. had to take the responsibility for supporting his family and has started a small business in his village.

With a little family fund, Sadiq purchased some basic goods and put them in his shop. Due to his friendly behavior, he became a popular shopkeeper in the village, attracting more customers day by day. Besides the store, he grows some vegetables on his land to sell them in his own shop. He enrolled his small brother in a public school and some other private courses. Now Sadiq is very happy with his life, and he is attempting to start his remaining education once again. For that purpose, he first needs to expand his business to increase his income from about US$8 a day to US$ 16 per day. With this goal in mind, he is requesting a loan in the amount of 50,000 Afghanis (US$ 1100).

Sadiq U. hopes to make a brighter future for himself and his brother. And he says that everything is possible if we have a strong will.
