Nazim is 56 years old and married with a son and three daughters. He and other members of his family are refugees and live in an IDP (internally displaced person) settlement.

He is a farmer and has gained good experience working in this field for 30 years. He raises greens and other sorts of seasonal vegetables and sells them at the local bazaar. His monthly income is 150 AZN.

People prepare different delicious dishes using fresh vegetables. They also like to cook fried vegetables like pomidor dolmasi and badimcan dolmasi. Nazim’s grocery is very popular because everybody knows that his vegetables are always fresh and were raised without any pesticides.

Unfortunately, Nazim’s income isn’t enough to cover his family’s cost of living. He needs money to provide for his children's education. He also wants to repair his old house.

He applied for a 2,000 AZN loan in order to buy new varities of vegetable seeds and increase his harvest. He hopes that the expansion of his small business will provide a good income to cover his family’s financial demands.

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.
