Description : This man has a shoe repair shop in this village, 60 km from Grozny where his wife and three children are living. He received the equipment and a fridge from the ICRC so that he could live in the village during the week. He chose to work outside Grozny as there are no competitors there, and he has lower expenses.
He started to repair shoes in the displaced persons camp in Ingushetia where he lived for three years after he fled in 2000.
