Shahla is a 52-year-old widow and she has two sons. Shahla is a teacher. She has 30 years of work experience in this field and continues her teaching activities. She teaches elementary classes and is a kind and wise woman who is greatly respected and loved by her pupils and colleagues. Her salary from this work is 120 AZN but it's not enough funds to take care of her family. Because of that, she works additionally after classes, at home with children from poor families who can't pay to study at school. Shahla needs a loan of 1,200 AZN to buy a computer, professional literature, copy–books, pencils, etc. She hopes that Kiva will help her provide an education to local poor children.

Additional Information

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.
