Firangiz
Firangiz is 49 years old, married and has three children, a 11-year-old, a 4-year-old son and a 2-year-old daughter. Her son goes to school. Her son wants to become a firefighter.

Firangiz has been an IDP (Internally Displaced Person) from Fuzuli city. Now she lives in the Fuzuli region, which is close to the occupied border. This is Firangiz's second loan from Kiva. She is very thankful to Komak and Kiva for her first loan. She started her business 9 years ago as a clothes-selling business. Now she needs a 2,000 AZN (Azerbaijan New Manat) loan to buy clothes for women and resell them in her shop.

Firangiz wants to use the money from her new business to help her family. In the future, she wants to have her own store, not rent a store as she does now. This will be more profitable for her business. Firangiz is thankful to Komak and Kiva for supporting her again.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan supports Komak clients who are designated as Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in 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. Azerbaijan is home to over 600,000 IDPs, who face limited access to employment adequate housing, water and electricity. Many of these people have also failed to qualify for loans through formal channels due to low income and lack of collateral. Komak has been working to support IDPs since 1999. By funding this loan, you are creating opportunities in extremely underserved communities.
