Rustam's story

Rustam is a good family man; he is married and has three children. All of his children have their own families. When he was young, he could not go to college because his parents could not afford to pay for the tuition. He got a job and helped his father sell little odds and ends at a small shop. Now Rustam has a food shop. You can find all kinds of products on his shelves: cookies, candy, preserves, and more. He thinks that food products sell more quickly, because they are in demand year-round. While involved in this business, Rustam taught his children and gave them a decent education. Now he saving money to fix his house, which has not been repaired for a long time and needs some renovation. But he cannot afford to do this, so he has come to Arvand for a loan. He really hopes that Arvand will provide him with financial assistance.
