When he was 30, he started to learn to work in agriculture. His parents were the ones who taught him to grow fruits and vegetables, since it was their only source of income.
Tofiq sells his crops in the central bazaar to make profits in order to support his family. His income from his business is 150 AZN.
In order to improve the living conditions of his family, he plans to expand his business. This requires a lot of dedication and effort. He believes in the near future his sons will help him to expand the business. Since the vegetable and fruits business is profitable and a fun business, he wants the business to continue and prosper.
Tofiq needs a 1,500 AZN loan to buy fertilizers, seeds and fruit trees. His biggest wish is to offer his children an education so that they can have good careers and help their family. His full thanks go to Aqroinvest and Kiva for the loan.
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.
