Salman has raised cattle and farmed for nine years. With two children and the responsibility of providing food for his home, he has been able to improve his family’s financial situation thanks to the excellent care that he has given his animals. Today, Salman finds himself in need of purchasing cattle in order to be able to take advantage of raising and selling them when necessary. For this reason, Salman is requesting a second loan from AqroInvest Credit Union in order to purchase these animals and raise them so that they can be used to support his family. He recommended himself as a trusted client as he repaid his loan on time.
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.
