Shavkatjon is divorced and has two of his children living with him. He is a craftsman and makes national baskets out of twigs, and sieves and rolling-pins out of wood. He buys raw materials from vendors in other markets where they are less expensive. He then sells his products in the village markets where he lives.
He wants to borrow money to purchase more raw materials so he can increase his inventory of sieves, rolling-pins and baskets. This will allow him to earn more money to support his family.
