Since he doe snot have a higher education, he makes a living by driving a taxi. Shukhrat drives a route to and from Dushanbe, the capital, because there is always a high demand for this service. Shuhrat has been doing this work for about seven years. Now his car needs to be repaired. Therefore, he applied for a loan. Shuhrat can then repair his car and continue his work, with which he feeds his family.
