A loan of $950 helped buy a variety of new household goods and other everyday items to expand his business.


Nekruz's story

Nekruz lives with his parents and brother in the Hamadoni region of Tajikistan. He is 24 years old, and his parents do not work. For 6 years, he and his brother have been selling household goods and other everyday supplies at a local market. They run their business from a stall, selling lamps, combs, rubber bands, kitchenware, toothpaste, napkins, batteries, children's toys, appliances, dolls, and a lot of other things to boot. They mostly sell lanterns of various sizes and brightness levels, as well as candles; many villages and towns where they live have limited electricity at night, so light sources tend to be popular items.

Nekruz has yet to go to university as he's had to support his family through working his market stall. At the moment, he is in need of a loan to buy some new household goods and other day-to-day items to supply his business, including lanterns and candles. As such, he is eagerly awaiting your help!
