Bahar
Bahar is 37 years old. She is an IDP (internally displaced person) and lives with her husband and children in the Bilasuvar IDP Settlement. She is a Fuzuli refugee. Bahar has been raising cattle for the past 15 years. She says this is a very difficult job. Taking care of animals is a continuous effort, but her husband helps her to raise the cattle, fatten them and sell them in the market.
Bahar usually buys cattle, raises them, fattens them and sells them in the central bazaar. Her monthly income of 150 AZ is the only source of income for her family. She plans to expand the business in order to bring more funds into her family. Selling meat is a very profitable business in Azerbaijan, due to its large use in everyday meals.

She is applying for a loan of 2000 AZN in order to buy more calves. This is going to be her fifth loan with Aqroinvest. She believes this loan will have a positive impact in the expansion of her 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.
