A loan of $1,200 helped to expand her farming.

Gulbakhar's story

N. Gulbakhar is a 29-year-old woman who owns her business in the small village of Varkhankend, situated in southern part of Azerbaijan in the Saatli region.

Gulbakhar raises vegetables, particularly cucumbers, in her garden and sells them to the local bazaar traders. She has five years of experience raising vegetables. Her business has brought her a good income all the years. Cucumbers are in very high demand among the Azerbaijani people, as they use them in their everyday meals.

Since selling vegetables is the only source of income for her family, Gulbakhar and her husband work very hard to cover all the family's needs and feed their two grown daughters. Last year was too hard for Gulbakhar`s family, as the prices for food increased twice, and they are going to rise again next year. Gulbakhar applied for a loan of $1200 to develop her business. She is going to rent land and start raising other sorts of vegetables.
