Gila
Gila is 47 years old and a married woman, who has four children. She is an IDP and lives in Bilasuvar IDP Settlement. Gila has been breeding cattle and cows for the past 10 years. She was a housewife, but her husband is unemployed, and her business helps to cover family needs.

Gila usually buys small calves, raises and fattens them for 5-6 months, and then resells them for a profitable price in the livestock bazaar. Her monthly income is 90 AZN, and this business is the only source of financial income in her family. Meat is in very high demand in Azerbaijan, and people use it in everyday dishes, like pilau and dolma. Gila also keeps milking cows for personal use and for selling milk to neighbors.

She wants to expand her business and improve the life conditions of her family. She applied for a loan of 1,500 AZN. She plans to purchase two calves, one milking cow, and fodder, with her loan funds. This will be her third loan, and she has a good credit history.

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. 

About Aqroinvest:

Aqroinvest Credit Union was founded in 2001 by a group of 32 farmers from Imishli. It has since grown to become the largest credit union in Azerbaijan, owned by its more than 5,400 borrowers and boasting a portfolio of nearly US$12 million.
AqroInvest is focused on providing loans to the following groups of people: rural farmers, people living in distant southern villages with little or no access to finance and internally displaced people and refugees, many of whom lost their homes and livelihoods during the violent conflicts in the 1990s.

In May 2011, Aqroinvest started a new project with Kiva proving higher education loans to students. The project gives students the support and financing they need to continue their education and helps pay for tuition fees at various universities in Azerbaijan. Aqroinvest is the first credit union in the country to offer students loans.
