A loan of $2,000 helped to pay for his son's university education.


Abdurasul's story

Abdurasul has been working as a cook at a restaurant for 7 years. He is 41 years old. He is a resident of the city of Khujand. Abdurasul is married and a father of three sons. His wife works as a teacher at the city's secondary school. His oldest son is a student. He is attending his first year at the Khujand State University, department of foreign languages, with the English language major. The rest of his sons are still school students. Abdurasul now needs to pay for his son's university education. He requested this loan to achieve this goal. Abdurasul hopes to get support. He wants his son to obtain the higher education because he thinks that education plays the main role in finding a decent job.
