Firuz D. is 21 years old, single, and went into business for himself right after finishing secondary school because his family could not afford to send him to university. His main goal now is to help his parents financially. Since 2004, he has done that in various ways, most recently by selling cell phones. He has been in this line of work for a year and has generated enough income to meet his goals. Business is very good, and Firuz needs to increase his inventory of phones to meet the needs of his clients. To do this, he is applying for a loan of $600. Because he is a young businessman and this is his first loan, Firuz is especially grateful to everyone who chooses to support him and promises to repay the loan promptly.
