Samandar's story

Samandar is from Dangara and is 24 years old. He is an unmarried young man, and lives with his parents, brothers and sisters. Samandar is an aspiring businessman. He is opening his own grocery store. To date, Samandar has acquired premises for a shop not far from his home and already furnished it with shelves for goods. His father and brother are helping him to arrange the shop.

To realize his dreams, Samandar must only buy the goods. To acquire goods, he applied for a loan. Samandar plans to buy dairy and bread products, sweets, cookies, butter, flour, sausages, and other necessities and requested food products. Only with support will Samandar be able to realize his dream and open his own grocery store.
