Aliseyran is a 55-year-old man who has lived all his life in Agsu, where he works as a farmer. He has two sons and two daughters, all of whom are married.
Aliseyran has an animal breeding business. This range of activities allows him to earn enough money to feed his large family. He requested a loan of 1000 Azerbaijan new manat (AZN) so that he can buy 10 sheep to fatten and resell at the local market in winter. Aliseyran dreams to provide the best living conditions for his children.
