Safarbeg is a very experienced repairman and he completes his work honestly and of a high quality. However, he hasn't received many orders recently like he had before. He needs to take care of his family and he has decided to leave for the Russian Federation. He is asking for a loan of 3,000 somoni to buy plane tickets to Russia. He is awaiting your kindness.
