People prefer to buy fruits and vegetables from private gardens, because they are naturally raised and cheaper. People know that such products are always fresh and healthy; they are not grown with pesticides and harmful. During long years of experience, Afruz learned how to cover her customer demand. So selling fruits and vegetables grown at home is popular and cheaper for people to buy them in bazaars than in big markets.
Afruza’s income doesn’t allow covering her customer's demands. She is planning to expand her garden and grow more seasonal fruits and vegetables. Afruza wants her son to get a high education and have a good life. She applied for 1500 AZN in order buy new fertilizer and expand her business.
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.
