Almas is 61 years old. She is an enterprising woman and mother of five children. 22 years ago, she understood that making pickles to sell was a good source of family income. That is why she continues growing vegetables with the support of her family. Having attained her fifth VFAC loan allows her to continue producing and firmly confronting her problems. It helps to support her children's future and her confidence. She will use the 1,000 AZN loan to buy vegetable seeds and sacks of organic manure.
