Rauf
Rauf is 29 years old, married and the father of a child aged 2 years. His wife stays at home, so he is the only one making an income for the family. Rauf is an IDP (Internally Displaced Person) from Fuzuli city. He lives in the Fuzuli region, which is close to the occupied border. He is applying for his first loan from Kiva to buy medication to sell.

Rauf will use the 2,000 AZN (Azerbaijan New Manat) loan to buy a different medication for some renal failure clients. He will use the additional income he earns from this loan to better care for his family. Rauf is thankful to Komak and Kiva for their support.

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.
