Tarafat is a 37-year-old farmer who raises fruits trees. She has run her business for ten years. She usually sells crops to the local people or takes them to the central city bazaar. Her monthly profit is 150 USD.
Tarafat would like to increase her profit and for this purpose she has applied for a 1,500 AZN loan. This will allow her to improve the quality of her land and purchase seeds and fertilizer.
Tarafat has good client history and thanks everybody who supports her with this loan.
