Yamil
Yamil is 34 years old. He is married and is raising two children with his wife. Yamil is an IDP (internally displaced person) and lives with his family in the Bilasuvar region. Yamil raises fruits and vegetables in his garden and has been doing this for the last four years. He is a very experienced farmer and has a deep knowledge of the land and how to work it.

Yamil typically grows seasonal fruits and vegetables and sells them for a profitable price in the central bazaar. Fresh fruits and vegetables are very popular and in high demand because people like to eat them every day and consider them very healthy. His monthly income from this business is 120 AZN. This is only one source of income for his family.

At present, he would like to invest more capital in his business and purchase seeds and fertilizers. For this purpose, he has applied for a loan of 2,000 AZN. He hopes this loan will improve life for his family.

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.
