Abdukayum's story

Abdukayum is 60 years old. He is married to a lovely woman, with whom he has lived for many years. His wife is retired and receives a small pension. They have three grown children. Despite his age, Abdukayum works very hard. For over ten years, he has been a great fisherman. Every morning he gets up early and goes to the sea with the hope to catch fish and in this way to live through the day. He catches primarily 20-25kg of fish per day and sells it at the local market. His son helps him in this work. They live not far from the sea and it is convenient for fishing. Abdukayum buys food, clothing, and other necessary means for living. Abdukayum's family is satisfied to have such a caring father and husband. But year after year Abdukayum's health is deteriorating. He is seriously ill and urgently needs treatment. Abdukayum has no money for treatment and therefore applied for a loan of 2,000 Somoni to buy medication. He is awaiting and hopes for your kindness. He promises to repay the loan on time.
