Safarali's story

Safarali is 37 years old, married and lives in the city of Dangara. He has three sons who are 9, 5, and 3 years old and a 7-year-old daughter. For five years, Safarali worked as a teacher of Tajik language and literature in his home town. He was not able to cover his family's expenses on a teacher's salary, which is why he took up fruit selling. His business is already six years old. He began his work with his brother so that he could learn marketing. Now he works alone, but he is not bored as his customers are his neighbors, and those who live close to him do not let him get bored. Safarali enjoys spending his time this way and brings something beneficial to his family's budget. He plans to buy more seasonal fruit and restock his supplies. He is requesting a loan for this purchase. When he gets his products, Safarali hopes to successfully sell them and thereby receive earnings and start repairs on his house. Safarali is getting ready for winter and is concerned about his children. Please help Safarali!
