Nazima
Nazima is a 53-year-old IDP woman, who lives in the Bilasuvar IDP Settlement with her husband and three children. She is a farmer and has raised seasonal fruits and vegetables for the last 10 years. Also, she raises fodder for cattle. She chose this business because it is profitable and her fresh crop is in high demand. People use fresh vegetables everyday and consider them healthy. Many national dishes are made of vegetables, such as pilau and dolma. Fresh fruits are served on every table in Azerbaijan families and are also used to make fresh punch.

Nazima sells her crop and fodder in the central bazaar and from her home. Her monthly income is 150 AZN. Her husband is a builder, but does not have a permanent job, and he actively helps her to raise the crops.

As these products are in high demand, Nazima wants to expand the business and produce more fruits and vegetables to cover the market demand. For this purpose she applied for 1800 AZN. She will buy new garden tools, seeds and fertilizers. This will be her second loan, and she has a good client history.

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.
