Abdusattor's story

Abdusattor lives in the Spitamen district. He is 45 years old, married and has four children. Many people in the district know him because he cooks delicious national dishes. This is why, in search of a source of income, he opened a cafe across from a market in 2005 and now has many regular customers. His sons and wife help him with the business, and he used his earnings to build and repair a house and also bought a car. Besides this business, he grows agricultural crops. Abdusattor wants to expand his business and plans to purchase ice-cream-making equipment and several bags of rice and also butter. This is why he came to our organization to request a loan and relies on our support.
