Malahat is married and has four children. She is 42 years old. She has been selling fruits and vegetables for three years. Currently, she needs 2350 AZN to buy more fruits and vegetables for resale and development of her business. Because Malahat has a large family and many children, she needs to increase her monthly earnings in order for her and her husband to provide for their family. Malahat is an IDP from the city of Fuzuli and now lives in the Fuzuli region together with her family.
An internally displaced person (IDP) is a person who have been forced or obliged to flee his home, in particular as a result of an armed conflict, violence, violations of human rights or natural or human-made disasters, and who, unlike a refugee, has not crossed an internationally recognised State border and remains on the territory of his own country.
