Rustamjon is 34 years old. He is married and has one daughter. Rustamjon is a master repairman for apartments. But now is not the season for his activities. Typically, residents of Khujand do repairs only in the spring and summer when it is hot. Rustamjon does repairs only on request.

Now it is autumn and the orders are gone. In autumn and winter, he does not have work, so he decided to start a new business in wholesale trade of mobile phones. In starting this business, he will be helped by a relative who is engaged in this sphere. Rustamjon does not have experience in this sphere, so he does not want to risk it and is borrowing only a small amount. The amount of the loan is small for a wholesaler, but he hopes that it will be enough to start the business.

Rustamjon hopes for the best and we wish him good luck!

Рустамчону 34 года. Он женат, имеет одну дочь. Рустамчон является мастером по ремонту квартир. Но сейчас не сезон его деятельности. Обычно жители Худжанда делают ремонты только весной и летом, когда жарко. Рустамчон делает ремонт только по заказу. Сейчас осень и заказы у него отсутствуют. Осенью и зимой у него нет работы, поэтому он решил начать новый бизнес и заняться оптовой продажей мобильных телефонов. В этом начинающем бизнесе ему будет помогать родственник, который занят в этой сфере. Рустамчон не имеет опыта в этой области, поэтому он не хочет рисковать и берет в кредит маленькую сумму. Сумма кредита является маленьким для оптовика, но он надеется, что для начинающегося бизнеса хватит. Рустамчон надеется на лучшее, а мы желаем ему удачи!
