Sevinj A. and her family are internally displaced people who have suffered from the war and have lost their home. In 1992, she moved to Bilasuvar city and started her own business. With the loan from AqroInvest Credit Union she was able to purchase her first cow. That is why, seven years ago, she decided to move forward with raising livestock. Every morning, she goes out early so that her beloved cows may graze among the hills all day in the hope that they return happy and satisfied.
Sevinj is motivated to continue in this arduous work by the thought of her future life as she is single and doesn’t have additional financial income. In order to succeed in her business, she seeks to nourish the animals and keep them happy, in the hope of ultimately selling them at a good price. Thanks to her continued activity in her occupation, Sevinj and her elderly parents are able to sustain themselves and this fills her with great satisfaction.
However, with the support of this loan, Sevinj would now like to also purchase more livestock to increase her clientele. She recommended herself as a reliable client with a good loan history. With your support, she will be able to accomplish her business goals.
