I was born from a financially poor family, we are four brothers and two sisters. I have lost a brother and a sister. I have quit school and started working since I was a kid, I was a waiter at a cafe. Back then, gas wasn’t used as much, they were only using wood and coal for heating. After a while of working, I opened my own cafe in Mahabad’s bazaar, and bought the shop next door and rented it to a shop selling coal. Nowadays, people don’t use coal as much, unless they are having a barbecue or smoking Shisha. I am getting old and my son runs the cafe now, and I work here setting up coal for the cafe
