Tahira has worked in this field for 34 years and she knows everything of farming. She also knows that seasonal vegetables aren't as profitable as she wants. But unfortunately she cannot raise other kinds of vegetables because of the cold climate in her region. People have high demands for fresh vegetables, especially greens because they are very good for health. People also use greens to prepare such national dishes as green qutab, dovgha, doghramaj, etc.
Tahira’s income is not enough for her to cover her family’s demands. She decided to build a greenhouse for her vegetables and buy additional vegetable seeds. That is why she applied for 1500 AZN loan from the credit union. She believes that this will help her to increase her income and be able to escape debts in future.
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.
