Ismat is a 50-years-old married man. He raises sheep and sells them for meat. Ismat has been doing this business for 10 years and is a very hard-working person. He puts a lot of effort in this activity because he wants to support his family.

Ismat keeps a flock of sheep in his own yard. He fattens them and takes their meat to the central bazaar for the butchers and customers purchase. People use mutton for traditional dishes like kababs, dolmas, pilovs, etc.

He has taken a loan previously and he has a good loan history. This will be his second loan. This time he requires 1,700 AZN to purchase 15 sheep in order to sell more meat in the autumn. Ismat is optimistic about this loan because in the autumn more people consume meat due to the holidays and increased customers in restaurants.

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.
