Lutfidin is a 27-year-old resident of the Gissar region in Tajikistan. He is married, and has 2 small children. Lutfidin is currently unemployed; he's been looking for a job for quite a long time, but has yet to find one that pays as well as he'd like. He has decided to start up his own business as a taxi driver; however, he lacks the money to buy a taxi. As such, Lutfidin feels his only option is to take out a loan, and is requesting a loan for as much money as necessary to buy a Daewoo Tico to use as a taxi. This loan will allow Lutfidin to not only have a job, but a source of stable income for his family as well. Once he's a taxi driver, he plans on working a fixed route in the city of Dushanbe (in Gissar).
