Y. Karim is 40 years old. He is married. He has three children. Karim is a market vendor. He is selling the brooms in the local market. As a rule, he purchases the brooms from the neighboring country Uzbekistan, from the city of Kokand. Karim has been in this business for eleven years. His wife and elder son help him with painting the brooms. Usually they paint the brooms with the red color in order to give them a good look to attract clients. Therefore his goods are in great demand.

The business is stable and allows Karim to use the generated income for improving the living conditions of the family. He is trying to do all the best in order to make his children happy and to give them a good education. Now his elder son is going to enter the University, and that’s why he needs to expand his business and increase the working capital for purchasing the brooms. With this purpose, he requests $700 for the term of 9 months. Karim is counting on your help and thanks everyone for supporting him.
