Gancali is a 62-year-old man on a pension who is married and has four children. He is an Internally Displaced Person and lives in the IDP Settlement.

He is farmer. He has raised potatoes, carrots, greens, and other vegetables for the past 18 years. His business has grown smoothly, and his monthly income is 150 AZN.

However, there is one main challenge in his business: no water for irrigation. He says that this summer was most harmful for his crop. It was extremely hot, and he had to order special water service for watering his land.

Gancali is not able to build water channel for his garden alone. This is a quite expensive process that requires labor and special equipment. He was extremely excited about the water loans provided by AqroInvest, so he applied for a AZN 2,000 loan. He will use this loan to pay for special equipment like a tractor for making the water channel and for workers who will dig the land.
