Temur also offers cell-phone repair service to locals and his monthly income is nearly $360. Temur’s spouse helps him run the business. The young couple work hard to ensure that their children have better living conditions and a good education for progressing in life.
As his earnings are not enough to cover utilities and food costs, Temur has decided to diversify the business and start up a small café, where doner will be sold. Doner (kebab/sandwich/gyro) has become a very popular fast-food dish in the last several years. According to Temur’s estimation, sales will be high as the location where he plans to hire the commercial space is crowded with people.
The income from the café will be a great support for the family, as the children need much and Temur is not able to give them what they need with his current modest earnings.
Temur appreciates your kindness.
