He purchases calves in the central livestock market and raises them. After fattening the animals, he resells them for a profitable price in a livestock bazaar. Meat is in very high demand in Azerbaijan and people use it in everyday dishes like pilau and dolma.
His business requires a lot of physical strength, as Adalat spends most of his time in the open air. His wife helps him to feed the animals.
His monthly income is 150 AZN and Adalat wishes to increase it. As meat is in high demand, he needs more capital to put to his business and cover the market. For this purpose, he applied for 1500 AZN. He will use the loan to buy two cattle, one milkier cow and fodder. This will be his second loan and he has a good client history.
