Bahtir is 62, married and the father of two adult children. He works in a private company fixing doors and other household things. His salary is very low and he is not satisfied with the income that he earns as he is the main source of income for his family.

Now, he is planning to continue in the same business but he wants to work independently. He has a lot of customers and he is well known for his work in his area. Bahtir is requesting a loan in order to buy machine for fixing doors, which will allow him to begin to operate independently. He anticipates that his own business will bring him more income than what he currently earns. His goal is to start and then expand his business and eventually employee others. He is very grateful for this opportunity!
