After trying her luck at a variety of occupations, she decided to work in the area of poultry breeding. She started this business 9 years ago with the support of her husband.
Now that Qandifa has experimented and acquired the necessary knowledge regarding this activity, she would like to expand her business by purchasing more poultry so that she can increase her earnings and continue to improve her family’s quality of life. Qandifa is requesting a loan of 900 AZN.
