Ilham is a 45-year-old farmer. He lives with his wife and four children. Three of the children are still in school. Ilham has been farming for 25 years, producing milk and milk products and raising animals that he sells at the local market in his area. His family has no additional source of income.
Ilham is requesting a 1,600 Azerbaijan new manat loan from VisionFund AzerCredit (VFAC) to buy one head of cattle. This will provide him with more products and increase his income that will help boost his living standards and pay for his children’s education. Ilham plans to expand his farm to guarantee the future of his children.
