Rajhab is thirty years old. He is married and has two sons. All members of the family live in an IDP (internally displaced persons) settlement. His wife is a housekeeper and raises the children. He is a farmer and raises seasonal fruits (apples, pears, cherries etc) and vegetables (cucumbers, greens, potatoes, tomatoes and so on). He sells all these products at the local bazaar to earn 180 AZN each month. He has been working in this field for five years and has good experience in gardening.

People like eating fresh fruit and vegetables because this is very good for their health. Besides that, people prepare different national dishes from vegetables and delicious sweet pies, cakes and jams from fruits. People prefer buying fruits and vegetables from Rajhab’s grocery. They visit every morning in order to buy all the products they need because his produce is always fresh and tasty.

Rajhab wants to expand his business and increase his monthly income. His current income isn’t enough to cover the children’s education and meet family’s demands. He applied for 1,100 AZN loan in order to buy high-quality fertilizers and garden tools. This is his second loan and he has a positive history as a client.

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.
