Also, on the territory of the house, Xanim has a small garden with apple and plum trees. In the autumn after collecting the crop, Xanim prepares jam and compotes for her family from apples and plums. The remaining portion of fruit and berries are sold. Their monthly income consists of about 200 AZN.
With the aim of further developing her homestead, Xanim turned to Aqroinvest CU and Partners for a loan of 2,000 AZN to buy sheep in order to increase their livestock headcount. She hopes for your kindness.
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.
