Bakhtiyor is 31 years old, the father of two children, a faithful husband and loving son. He has a large family, which consists of his parents, wife and two children. Bakhtiyor lives in the city of Dushanbe, together with his family. Bakhtiyor has three years of experience as a driver. He decided that it would be an advantage to start a business. Bakhtiyor decided to purchase a mini-bus of the type "Starex", and drive people from one place to another. Bakhtiyor enjoys driving, and he would like to combine business with pleasure. The "marshrutka" service is profitable, and Bakhtiyor likes this work. Therefore he would like to serve the capital's residents and visitors, so they don't feel discomfort during the transport. Unfortunately the mini-bus is expensive, and Bakhtiyor does not have enough own money to purchase it. He requests a loan in order to purchase the mini-bus, start his own business and start earning money to support his family.
