Ismoil is from Qubadiyon and has a small business. He is 50 years old and has his own flour mill close to home. Residents of his village and the surrounding area visit him in order to grind their wheat. He has been in this business for 6 years. Now that he has plenty of experience, he has decided to expand his small business. He wants to provide an additional service--namely, processing rice. Because electricity in his area is low and frequently cuts out, he also plans to buy a generator to supply power to his shop. Ismoil needs a loan because he does not have enough money. He is requesting a loan of $4000 to buy the equipment to process rice in addition to a generator. Thanks to the loan he will be able to purchase this equipment and his business will grow more successful and more profitable. He hopes for financial support.

Жители его села и близлежащих деревень постоянно обращаются к его услугам для измельчения своих пшениц. Исмоил занимается производством муки на протяжении 6 лет. Теперь когда у него достаточный опыт он решил расширить свой малый бизнес. Он хочет предоставлять еще дополнительную услугу, а именно - перерабатывать рис.
