Eyvaz H. is 44 years old. He is married and has six children! He is a hard-working man who has fought to educate his children and provide for his family.
Eyvaz has much experience in raising calves because he observed it from a young age. With time, he has increased his sales and now he needs assistance in the form of investment in his business to allow him to buy more cattle. The business has been going well and he would like it to continue to grow.
Eyvaz applied for a loan to buy calves. He and his family thank you very much for the support that you will provide them by helping him continue his business and give his family a better quality of life.
Aqroinvest Credit Union was founded in 2001 by a group of 32 farmers from Imishli. It has since grown to become the largest credit union in Azerbaijan, owned by its more than 5,400 borrowers and boasting a portfolio of nearly US$12 million.
AqroInvest is focused on providing loans to the following groups of people: rural farmers, people living in distant southern villages with little or no access to finance and internally displaced people and refugees, many of whom lost their homes and livelihoods during the violent conflicts in the 1990s.
In May 2011, Aqroinvest started a new project with Kiva proving higher education loans to students. The project gives students the support and financing they need to continue their education and helps pay for tuition fees at various universities in Azerbaijan. Aqroinvest is the first credit union in the country to offer students loans.
