Safayat's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase three cattle and eight sheep.
Safayat is a 60-year-old woman who is married with two sons and two daughters. She breeds sheep and cattle for meat purposes with local butchers. Safayat has 20 years of experience in this field and she thanks her husband, who taught her how to look after cattle and who helps her to run the business. Her husband is currently on a pension. Safiyat usually buys small cattle and sheep, raises and fattens them in 5-6 months, and resells them for a more profitable price in the local livestock bazaar. Meat selling brings an income of 300 Azerbaijan new manats (AZN) per month. Beef and mutton are very popular products in Azerbaijan. People use meat in everyday national dishes such as pilau and dolma, and they always use yogurt sauce. She also sells sheep wool, which is useful for clothing and blankets. Safayat applied for a loan of 1800 AZN to purchase three cattle and eight sheep. This will be her sixth loan and she has a good loan history.
