Zaur 34 years old, married and has two children. His family live in the house which the state has given them as refugees. Eight years ago, Zaur has started his own business. Previously, he worked at a school as a master but his salary did not allow him to fully maintain the family's needs.
After remembering the skills taught to him by his father, he decided to open his own workshop. Now he repairs vehicles. In addition, in front of the garage he wants to open a teahouse. So far, his clients are served tea in the workshop which creates some discomfort for him and his customers. For this reason, he has applied for a loan in the amount of 700 AZN. With the teahouse separated from the workshop, he can confidently and without hesitation continue his work with quality and professionalism to repair the machine.
