Vuqar is a 44-year-old man. He is an IDP who lives in the Bilasuvar IDP Settlement with his wife and two children. After several attempts to find a job he decided to start his own business. He is farmer and has raised seasonal fruits and vegetables for the last 10 years.

He chose this business because it is profitable and fresh crops are in high demand. People use fresh vegetables every day and consider them healthy. Many national dishes are made from vegetables, like pilau and dolma. Fresh fruits are served on ever Azerbaijan family’s table and are also used to make fresh punch.

Vuqar sells his crops in the Bilasuvar central bazaar. His monthly income is 100 AZN. His wife actively helps him to raise the crops.

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.
