Yashar usually buys lambs and fattens them for three to six months and then resells for a profitable price in the livestock bazaar. His monthly income is 100 AZN, and this business is the main source of income for his family. Mutton is in very high demand in Azerbaijan, and people use it in everyday dishes like pilau and dolma. His older son helps Yashar to look after the sheep.

Additional Information

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.
