Asaf is 33 years old and married, but does not yet have any children. He is an IDP (Internally Displaced Person) and lives in an IDP Settlement with his wife. He has had his own agricultural business for the last six years, and has built a greenhouse on a small piece of land where he grows vegetables. When his crops are ready he goes out and sells them in different markets near his home. This is a good business to be in because in Azerbaijan there is a daily demand for fruits and vegetables for people to use when making traditional meals. He has already taken out one prior loan from Aqroinvest and successfully repaid it. He is requesting a second loan for 2,000 AZN to buy mineral fertilizers in order to improve his soil and get a good harvest. He appreciates your 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. 

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.
