Qurban
Qurban is 43 years old and married with two children. He is an IDP (Internally Displaced Person) and lives with his family in the Bilasuvar IDP Settlement. He breeds sheep for meat and fur purposes, and sells to local butchers. Qurban has more than 13 years of experience in this field, thanks to his father who taught him how to look after sheep. He receives 90 AZN financial support from the government monthly, but this is too low to cover his family needs.
Qurban usually buys lambs, raises and fattens them in 4-5 months and resells them for a more profitable price at the local livestock bazaar. His monthly income is 110 AZN. People use meat in everyday national dishes as pilau and dolma and always use yoghurt sauce. Mutton is considered very healthy and is also present in everyday life. Fur is very useful for blankets and bed mattresses made by local woman.
This is the only financial income for his family. Qurban applied for 1500 AZN to purchase 15 sheep and fodder.

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.
