Previously Garik used to work at the gas station, but now on his own bus he takes passengers from the village of Kurtan to Vanadzor city. In this village Garik knows nearly everybody, since he was born here. He does his work with great pleasure and care as among his passengers he always meets his playmates, schoolmates, and neighbors. Garik passed his whole childhood in this village.
He helps the farmers to transfer their farm products to the city for sale and also transfers students who study in Vanadzor city. All the people that travel daily on his bus respect and love Garik very much, and they say that on the way from the village to the city they pass the time enjoying different conversations, making jokes, and remembering different stories from their youth.
Garik takes care of his bus properly as it is the only source of income for his family and also the only vehicle for the people from their village to the city. So he needs this loan amount in order to do some repair work on his bus and also to buy new tyres.
