Azad sells his crops in the Bilasuvar Settlement and sometimes in the bazaar. His monthly income is 130 AZN. His wife actively helps him to raise crops.
As these products are in high demand, Azad wants to expand his business and produce more fruits and vegetables to cover market demand. For this purpose, he applied for an 1800 AZN loan. He will buy new garden tools, seeds, and fertilizers. This will be his third loan and he has a good client history.
He has more plans for the future, such as to get more land for cultivation. Azad looking forward to increased sales in the coming summer because people purchase fruits a lot.
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.
