Shavkat's story

Shavkat is an energetic and conscientious young man. He is 20 years old. He is unmarried and lives with his parents. After graduating from school, he did not have the opportunity to continue his education at university. He began to work four years ago in a local cafe as a shashlik (shish-kebab) griller. He makes shashliki (shish-kebabs) from lamb, beef and chicken. He is an expert at grilling and his customers are crazy about his shashliki. Shavkat has a good reputation among the workers at the cafe.

Shavkat's parents are simple laborers and do not have the means to repair their house. Shavkat decided to repair the house himself. However, he does not have enough money for this. He wants to repair the house and then get married, which is to say, he wants to create a good housing situation for a future wife. He is requesting a loan in the amount of 3500 somonis to purchase building materials such as cement, paint, etc. for home repair. This is his first loan and he promises to repay it on time. He awaits your kindness.
