Shakil H. is a 45-year-old man who breeds sheep in the small village of Saatli city. He started in this business at a very young age and now he has a lot of permanent customers who always buy good sheep for meat production from Shakil.

Mutton is very popular among Azerbaijani people and sheep breeding brings stable income to Shakil. He is single and lives with his parents. Shakil believes one day he could marry, and, for this purpose, he works very hard.

He has applied for a loan of 1,000 AZN to purchase more sheep and fodder. As summer is a high season for wedding parties where barbequed mutton is very popular, Shakil hopes to fatten as many sheep as possible by June.
