Sahiba's story

Sahiba, a 54-year-old single woman who lives with her sister's family, grows seasonal fruits and vegetables. She has also been breeding cattle for 10 years.

Assisted by her sister, Sahiba sells her crops in the bazaar and from her house. Her monthly income of 120 AZN is the main source of the family's income. People use fresh vegetables everyday and consider them to be a healthy part of their diet. Many national dishes, such as pilau and dolma, are made of vegetables. As well, fresh fruits are served at every Azerbaijani table, and many also make fresh fruit punches.

Sahiba wants to expand her business and improve the living conditions of her family. She has applied for a loan of 1000 AZN to purchase new garden tools, seeds and fertilizers.
