Arif, 48, is a farmer who breeds cattle for milk and meat purposes. He is married and has two sons. He is an internally displaced person (IDP) and lives in an IDP settlement. He has 10 years of experience in the cattle business.

The village where Arif lives is located in the southern part of Azerbaijan with very rigorous climate conditions. Summer temperatures reach 105 degrees fahrenheit. The main problem in the region is adequate water for irrigation and for animals. Arif cannot afford to build a water channel for his animals. This expensive process requires a labor force and special equipment. When he heard about water loans he was extremely excited and applied for a 2000 AZN loan. He will use this loan to pay for special equipment to rent, like a tractor for making the water channel, and for workers who will dig the land.

He is trustworthy client of AqroInvest and has a good client history.

About Aqroinvest:

Aqroinvest Credit Union was founded in 2001 by a group of 32 farmers from Imishli. It has since grown to become the largest credit union in Azerbaijan, owned by its more than 5,400 borrowers and boasting a portfolio of nearly US$12 million.
AqroInvest is focused on providing loans to the following groups of people: rural farmers, people living in distant southern villages with little or no access to finance and internally displaced people and refugees, many of whom lost their homes and livelihoods during the violent conflicts in the 1990s.

In May 2011, Aqroinvest started a new project with Kiva proving higher education loans to students. The project gives students the support and financing they need to continue their education and helps pay for tuition fees at various universities in Azerbaijan. Aqroinvest is the first credit union in the country to offer students loans.
