Mahammad earns money by growing fruits and vegetables, and selling them at the local bazaar. He has nine years of experience in this area. The monthly income is 230 AZN.
There is high demand for fruits and vegetables. Every day people use them in preparing different kinds of fruit juice, jam and vegetable salads. People buy from private gardens because food there is cheaper than in the markets.
Mahammad wants to make his family’s life better, and he especially wants to provide for his daughters' future. He applied for 700 AZN loan in order to buy more fertilizers and fruit tree seeds to increase his income.
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.
