Faisal’s older brother, Sufiyan, also suffers from filariasis and blurred eyesight. Younger brother Ayaan is only 14 years old, so all the financial responsibility of the family fell on Faisal who, given the constraints, had to take the vegetables from the wholesalers in the morning on credit and after the sale use to repay in the evening in keeping the balance gained with him to lead the family.
