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.
