Qahraman is a 30-year-old man, an Internally Displaced Person (IDP) who lives in Bilasuvar IDP Settlement with his wife and two children. He is a farmer and has raised seasonal fruit and vegetables for the last 5 years. During these years Qahraman gained enough skills and experience to run the business. He chose this crop business because it is profitable and fresh fruit and vegetables are in high demand. People use fresh vegetables every day and consider them healthy; many national dishes made of vegetables, like "pilau" and "dolma". Fresh fruits are served on every table in Azerbaijan and also used to make fresh punch. Qahraman raises pears, apples, peaches, plums, pomegranates, cucumbers, tomatoes, carrot and potatoes. He usually sells his crop in the central bazaar. His monthly income is 240 AZN. As these products are in high demand, Qahraman wants to expand his business and produce more fruit and vegetables to cover market demand. For this purpose he applied for 1500 AZN. He will buy new garden tools, seeds and fertilizers.
