Rovshan is married and has three children. To improve his children's living conditions, he started raising livestock, which he has been doing for 22 years. He sells the meat at the bazaar.
Rovshan is requesting a loan for 1,600 AZN, which he will use to buy a few head of sheep. He plans to expand his business and start raising sheep for wool selling. From the income he plans to build a stall in his own yard, because he currently keeps his cattle in a stall in his brother's yard.
