This young man lives in the Absheron region. He is married and has one child. Vamig is 28 years old. He started working as a driver for a private firm almost five years ago, but then became a taxi driver and has been working as a taxi driver for two years. He learned this business from his father, who worked as a private driver in his time. Currently, Vamig needs 2000 AZN to purchase spare parts and repair his taxi because he cannot work while it is not fixed. Vamig looks after his mother, who is elderly and uses a lot of medicines, so he needs to repair his car quickly to continue supporting her.
