I never know that night. The last part of the night
of 29 August. Suddenly someone screamed. I realized
that someone was calling me by my name.
Limon brother, got up early. The fire took place in
I was not sure what to do. I ran like crazy. But then
all ends. To burn finished the only resort of my
earning. I could not cope myself in any way. I went
on burning coals.
When the knowledge came back, I was in a local health
My family is with my wife, three small childrens and
old parents. My life was working very hard to work as
a laborer. Haven’t had to eat many nights. When the
children came running in food pains, as a father, I
wanted to die.
One day I got a chance to start a business. Being
released from the life of my hardship did not tempt
me to give up the opportunity.
Where do get so much money?
I started to lend a hand to everyone I knew.
Relatives, friends, neighbors, co-operative societies
all. But I could not even start it.
At last, I started my business with debt by placing
my house property. It was quite good to buy and sell.
But in my life the happiness lasted just two months.
Still no creditor's money was paid.
After the store was burnt, some local people came and
help for some days. The creditors did not come then.
But now ....
The creditor's pains every day, elderly parents,
small child feeding arrangements. No one can do it.
It started on the notice of the monetary bailout You
have to pay a rebate, otherwise the place of
evacuation will be left empty.
I'm going crazy. I began to think that my death was
better than to survive.
What I do? Where will I go? Where will I give shelter
to my little children, elderly parents? How much
money will I pay?
So I raised my hands. Please help me. Give me the
chance to live.
