Ezhar's story

Ezhar A. is 21; he lives in the Shewa district with his two children and his wife. Ezhar is uneducated, but clever and active. During the last three decades, because of the war in Afghanistan, Ezhar couldn't go to school and was unable to realize his dreams. His two small brothers are studying in a public school and Ezhar helps them and attempts to provide all the necessary things for them.

When Ezhar A. got married, his father gave him just 30,000 Afghanis ($600). He was tired of farming, so he changed his business and immediately opened a small retail shop with 18,000 Afghanis and purchased some goods with the remainin money. At the beginning, Ezhar encountered some difficulties because he was new to this business and didn't have previous experience in shopkeeping. He didn't know how to find customers and increase his sales, but after a few months he got this skill and was finally able to purchase more retail goods for his shop.

Ezhar A. is not just a breadwinner for his own family, but he must provide some medicines for his sick parents and support his small brothers also.

Two months ago he completed a mobile phone repair private course, and then he decided to change his business and started a mobile repair and sales shop. He thinks that there is much demand for these things, but he needs some money to purchase enough equipment and different models of mobile phones. Thereford he has applied to AFSG for a 50,000 Afghanis loan for 18 months.

Ezhar dreams that if he able to increase his daily income from 400 Afghanis ($8) to 700 Afghanis ( $14), he will learn some English and computer skills. He sincerely thanks the lenders who assist poor people hard times and encourage them to work.
