Mirqasim
Mirqasim is 36 years of age. He is a married person. He has two kids. Mirqasim is an IDP (internally displaced person) and lives with his family in the Bilasuvar IDP Settlement. His wife stays at home, so he is the only one making an income for the family. For five years, he has grown fruits and vegetables in his yard and sold them in the bazaar. In this business, his wife also helps him, and from this business his monthly profit is 100 AZN [Azerbaijani New Manat].

In Azerbaijan, fruit is in very high demand and people like to eat fresh fruit a lot. Besides his fruit he also sells flowers. Mirqasim is really optimistic about the future, regarding the expansion of his business, in order to raise the standard of living of his family. He needs to buy new farming supplies such as seeds, fertilizers and fruit trees.

For this purpose, he has applied for a loan of 2,000 AZN. He thanks Kiva lenders for their support.

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.
