Izzat usually buys cattle, takes care of them by fattening them, and finally sells them in the market. His monthly income is 150 AZN. This financial income is the only source for the family. He plans to expand the business in order to bring more funds into the family. Selling meat is a very profitable business in Azerbaijan due its common use in everyday meals.
Izzat is applying for a loan of 2,000 AZN in order to buy more calves. This is going to be his fourth loan with Aqroinvest. He believes this loan will have a positive impact on the expansion of his business.
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.
