A loan helped for minibus repairs.

Saydamir's story

Saydamir is 61 years old. He resides in Kulob and drives a white minibus. Everybody calls this minibus "Tango," and it has room for seven passengers. Saydamir has driven "Tango" for more than seven years. Such minibuses are not durable, first because it is a passenger vehicle, and second they quickly wear down. Saydamir is asking for credit to repair his minibus. He does not have enough money for a new vehicle, but repairs of his vehicle are cheaper. Saydamir is planning to repair his vehicle and return to work. Then he hopes to raise funds and buy a new car.
