Bahodurhon's story

Bahodurhon is a 33-year-old man. He is married and has three children. He has a college education, but due to a lack of jobs in his profession, he drives a marshrutka, which is a commercial passenger van that serves as a taxi. The van is his personal property. His wife does not work outside the home, since they have three children, one of whom is still nursing. Bahodurhon must work to earn a living to feed and educate his children. He has taken out a loan to install a natural gas fuel system on his vehicle. Once the equipment is installed, it will be cheaper to fill his tank with natural gas than it was to use gasoline, thus increasing his profit.
