Elsavar I., a 30-year-old trader who is married and has two sons, started his business in 2006 and has already become a successful entrepreneur. Operating his store in an Internally Displaced People Settlement, he has gained much respect from the many people he respectfully serves every day. Elsavar sells a variety of goods including diapers, tooth paste, napkins, light bulbs, and macaroni. As well, he works at night as a security guard at the local factory, earning about $90 per month, an amount insufficient to meet basic family expenses.
Because the goods he sells are in high demand, he is requesting a loan of $1200 to purchase additional inventory. Elsavar and his family thank everyone for their help.
