Blind car mechanic from Batken region supports his family repairing cars

AKIPRESS.COM - Israil Temirov lives in Kyzyl-Bel, Batken district of Batken region. Nine years ago he lost his vision, but yet he acquired car mechanic skills and suports his family.

Israil said he has been working as car mechanic for the past 6 years. He opened a small car repair station in his yard, where he repairs cars. The man has lots of clients now.

"I lost vision in 2011. I did nothing for around 3 years. My life became so dark, I did not go out. But then I decided to do something to support my family and planned to open a car repair station. My relatives were skeptical, they did not believe I could make it," Israil said.

"It took me a year to prepare for my plan to come true. At first I repaired cars of my relatives or familiars. Some of them were doubtful about quality of my work. But when I repaired their cars, they were grateful," he said.

Israil Temirov needs help in many cases. His son, who acquired necessary skills as well, helps the man.

It is possible to overcome all difficulties in life if desired, says the man.
