Ilaha's story

Ilaha is 21 years old, married, and has a daughter. She is an IDP (internally displaced person) and lives with her family in the Bilasuvar region. Ilaha's husband is a butcher, but earnings from this job aren't enough and the main source of income for the family is farming. Ilaha raises and sells seasonal vegetables such as pumpkins, cucumbers, potatoes and so on. She has been raising them and selling at local bazaar for two years and has good experience in this area. Her monthly income is 150AZN. Vegetables are in high demand in Azerbaijan because people like to use them for fresh salads and delicious national dishes. They attend local groceries and buy fresh and tasty vegetables. They know that vegetables raised in private gardens are always fresh and without pesticides. Ilaha needs money to cover her family’s demands. She applied for 1500AZN in order to supply quality fertilizers and increase harvest and income.
