Humans of Kurdistan - South 70

“Before the KRG decided to sell oil, I used to sell cigarettes in the bazars and had invested a lot of money in my work. But as soon as the news of selling oil got around, the market broke down drastically and I had a huge loss, estimating about 13000 Dinars at the time. It was a great amount for the time. I did not have any money left. So I stopped doing that because of the lack of money and started fixing samovar and heaters. I have still not been able to account for my loss, but I never let myself feel down because of it. That is just how life is… I am always happy.”
