Ismat's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to build a small greenhouse for his garden.
Ismat is 55 years old and married with two daughters. His wife is a housekeeper, and the family lives in an IDP settlement because they are refugees. Ismat raises seasonal fruits and vegetables in his garden and sells them at a local bazaar. He has worked in this field for 15 years and earns 100 AZN monthly. Azerbaijan cuisine is various and very rich. People use vegetables to prepare such dishes as badimjhan dolmasi from eggplant, fried tomato with meat, etc. They also cook different kinds of pies, cakes and cookies from fruits (pear or apple pie, fruit cakes for birthdays, etc.). Ismat needs to increase his income in order to support his family. Besides that, the weather where he lives is very cold. He applied for 2000 AZN in order to build a small greenhouse for his fruit trees and vegetables. This is his second loan, and he has a positive client history.
