Safar's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy one milking cow, two cattle, and fodder.
Safar is a 37-year-old man, married with two daughters. He is an IDP (Internally Displaced Person) and lives with his family in Bilasuvar IDP Settlement. Safar breeds cows and cattle and sells milk and milk products, as well as cattle for meat purposes to local butchers. He has ten years of experience in this field, thanks to his father who taught him the best way to look after cattle. Safar usually buys small cattle, raises and fattens them for 5-6 months and resells them for a more profitable price in the local livestock bazaar. Milk and yoghurt he sells to the neighbors. Milk and meat selling brings income of 110 AZN per month. Milk and yoghurt, as well as meat, are very popular products in Azerbaijan. People use meat in everyday national dishes such as pilau and dolma, and always use yoghurt sauce. Milk products are considered to be very healthy and are also present in everyday life. This is the only financial income in his family and it is not enough to cover the basic needs of his beloved children. Safar applied for 1,500 AZN to purchase one milking cow, two cattle, and fodder.
