Qasham is a 33-year-old married father of two children, both in school.
Qasham works very hard to provide for his family. He has been supporting his family through the income earned from a small general store. He sells items like snacks, spices, electric bulbs, and soda in his village. He has had the store for the past eight years.
Qasham has requested a 2,000 AZN loan through Aqroinvest to buy more items to sell in the store. This is not his first loan from AqroInvest. Qasham has a good credit history and good morals.
Aqroinvest Credit Union was founded by a group of 32 Imishli farmers in 2001, and has grown to become one of the largest credit unions in Azerbaijan. It boasts a portfolio of nearly $5 million and is wholly owned by its more than 3,500 borrowers, as of December 2011.
