Izzat
Izzat is 41 years old, married, and the father of 3 children. He is an IDP (internally displaced person) and lives with his family in the Bilasuvar IDP Settlement. He has been raising cattle during the past years. He says this is a very difficult job. Taking care of animals is a continuous effort, but his wife is helping him to raise the cattle, fatten them, and sell them in the market.

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.

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.
