Rakhib lives in the Fuzuli region and has been in the dairy business for two years. He is single and was born in 1988.
This young man enjoys his business. He does not buy milk from the market. Instead, with his small dairy business, he supports his family with milk, cheese, yoghurt, butter. He thinks that these products are very useful for health and is thankful for his dairy business.
Rakhib also sells the milk, cheese, yoghurt, and butter to other families. Now he needs a loan of 2000 AZN to buy two cows for increasing his dairy business. If he buys two additional cows, he estimates that he will have more products for sale and materially increase his client base and provide income for his immediate and extended family.
