Afqan loves his job very much, and he knows everything about his customers’ demands. He knows that people prefer to buy fresh products from private gardens because they are always fresh and cheap. They like to eat the fruit fresh or make a juice, pie, or jam for tea.
Afqan’s income is too low to cover his cost of living, and it's especially hard for him as a refugee. He has applied for a loan of 1100 AZN in order to buy fertilizers and potentially increase his seasonal harvest. He hopes that this loan will help him to increase his earnings from farming and cover all of the family's needs.
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.
