Ahmad is a very hardworking and friendly man of 29. He is married and is an internally displaced person (IDP). Ahmad is cattle breeder and has six years of experience in this field. He gets financial support from government as an IDP but it is too low to cover the family's needs.

Ahmad usually buys small cattle, raising and fattening them for five to six months, and resells them at the local livestock bazaar. Meat selling brings in 110 Azerbaijanian Manat (AZN) per month. People use beef in everyday national dishes as pilau and dolma and always use yoghurt sauce.

This is the only income for his family and not enough to cover basic needs of his beloved children. Ahmad applied for 1500 AZN to purchase four calves. This will be his second loan and he has good client history.

More information about this loan

This loan is designed for clients residing in settlements for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Bilasuvar, Azerbaijan. An internally displaced person (IDP) is someone who has been forced to flee his or her home due to armed conflict, violence, human rights violations, or natural or manmade disasters, but who, unlike a refugee, has not crossed an international border (source: UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs). Many of these people have failed to qualify for loans through formal channels due to low income and lack of collateral. By funding this loan, you are creating opportunities and supporting economic development in extremely underserved communities.
