Yazgul is a 50-year-old married woman and mother of son who is studying to go to college. Her husband is a war veteran. The management of the family is under Yazgul's control. For the last 19 years, she and her husband have been raising and selling cattle and milk products, which has been a profitable project, but also needs more support to cover the family's needs.
The number of cattle is growing, and she is finding it a problem to have stalls for all animals. In future from the income, she wants to build a new stall.
She is requesting a 400 AZN loan from VFAC to help her to cover the costs of planting corn and alfalfa. This will expand their project, increase sales and improve the family's income.
