Sheep are raised in order to be butchered, to obtain derived products and to be used for agricultural tasks. Seymur A. has been dedicated to sheep farming for eight years. He is married and the father of two children. He makes a great effort in order to meet the needs of the children in his charge and to bring sustenance to his humble home.
His greatest need now is to buy 10 sheep and fodder for expanding his business. For this reason, Seymur turned to AqroInvest Credit Union in order to obtain a loan of $1,200 that will allow him to purchase these animals and make his business better.
Aqroinvest Credit Union was founded by a group of 32 Imishli farmers in 2001, and has grown to become one of the largest credit unions in Azerbaijan. It boasts a portfolio of nearly $5 million and is wholly owned by its more than 3,500 borrowers, as of December 2011.
