Arif's story

Arif K. is 53 years old. He is married, with two children: a 20-year old daughter who is a university student and a 19-year old son, also a university student, who helps his father with the work. Arif is an Internally Displaced Person; he is a refugee from the Fuzuli Region and now lives in the village of Dilagar, Fuzuli Region, together with his family.

Arif has been raising cattle for two years. He learned this work from his uncle. This is already a second loan for Arif. He took out a loan of $1200 in the past and is very grateful to lenders for that loan. After the first loan he was able to grow his business, after which he decided to switch to a more profitable occupation. Now, as you can see on the photo, he raises cattle. At present he needs 2000 AZN in order to buy a cow for his new line of business.
