Almazar raises and sells seasonal vegetables such as pumpkin, cucumber, potatoes and so on. She has been raising them and selling at the local bazaar for 24 years and has good experience in this area. Her monthly income is 200AZN.

Vegetables are in high demand in Azerbaijan because people like to use them for fresh salads and delicious national dishes. They go to local groceries to buy fresh and tasty vegetables. They know that vegetables raised in private gardens are always fresh and without pesticides.

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.
