Community Members Help A Poor Man To Become Rich

One month ago in our village, there was a man who wanted to go further studies in England. Th man was very poor. He passed his exams very well. One day he anounced his problems to the village members. The village members were very kind and they helped him to get money. He was a respected person in our village. The village contributed two hundred and fifty thousand and they lend the money to him. He was very happy. The following day, he travelled to England for his further studies. He was going to be there for three months and come back to the village. Days, weeks and months and come back to the village. He had finished his studies and he was employed as a bank manager. People in the village were happy to see him working and driving his own vehicle. He promised the village members that he would help anybody in the village whatever he or she has a problem. People were very happy with his good promised words.
