Elnur's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase 12 sheep in order to sell more meat in the summer.
Elnur is 32 years old, married and the father of 3 children. He is an IDP (internally displaced person) and lives with his wife and kids in the Bilasuvar IDP Settlement . For the past 8 years he has been raising sheep because mutton is in high demand in this region. His income of 100 AZN monthly from this business. This is a very profitable business and he is doing it together with his wife. He is keeping a flock of sheep in his own yard. He fattens them and takes their meat to the central bazaar, where butchers and customers purchase from him. People use mutton for traditional dishes like kababs, dolmas, pilovs, etc. He has taken a loan from Aqroinvest before and has a good loan history. This is going to be his 5th loan. This time he requires 1,900 AZN in order to purchase 12 sheep to sell more meat in the summer. He is optimistic about this loan, because in the summer more people consume meat, due to the holidays and increased customers in restaurants.
