Damir's story

Damir is 36. He is a faithful husband and father. Damir and his wife live in the Muminobod. Damir is a taxi driver. He has 5 years of experience.

Damir is applying for a loan to start a new business. He and his wife would like to open a grocery store at home and buy products with the loan. Damir will bring home the grocery products and his wife will sell them and run the business. Damir hopes that they will be able to start the business because there is no one closer or dearer to him than his wife. They overcame a lot of misery and hardship and are confident that their business together will flourish.
