Sharafaddin is a 60-year-old married father of 5 kids. His wife is a housewife. He is a popular merchant in his hometown, because his shop is situated in the center of town. It has already been 20 years since he started selling food products. His profit from this business is about 150 AZN a month. He sells food products such as macaroni, rice, candies, cookies, sugar, and beverages in his shop. His son also helps him with this business.

The profit he gains is not enough to reinvest into his business to cover his customers` demands. For this reason he is suffering. His shop is the family's main source of income, and his profit is used for their needs. Sharafaddin would like to increase his sales and invest additional capital. He applied for a 1,800 AZN loan for this purpose. He will purchase additional food products and diversify. This will be his 6th loan and he has a good credit history.

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.
