To earn a living, he sells fruits such as pears, oranges, apples, pomegranates, and bananas. With the help of AqroInvest CU, Sadiq was able to start his own business when he was unemployed and experiencing difficult living conditions. He has one year of experience in this field.
He explains that fruits are very popular among Azerbaijan people and in high demand during this time of year. People like to eat fresh fruits, and fruits are one of the main dessert options for guests. His shop is located in the center bazaar, so people constantly pass by his shop and stop to buy fresh fruit. His monthly income from this business is approximately 250 AZN. Sadiq's father helps sell the fruit.
Sadiq now wants to expand his business. The amount of products he sells is not enough to cover the high demand. As a result, he would like to purchase more fruits and vegetables and increase his turnover, which would in turn improve his family's living conditions. For this purpose he applied for a loan in the amount of 1,500 AZN. This would be his second loan, and he explains that he has a good record of repaying loans.
