Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

Shakir's story

Shakir, 54, is married and lives with his wife and three children in a small city. He is a farmer who grows and sells fruits and vegetables from his garden. He has more than 30 years of experience in crop raising and is thus very experienced in this sphere.

Fresh fruits and vegetables are a most popular product and in high demand in Azerbaijan. People use them to make fresh juice, which is good for the health, as well as in national dishes like pilau and dolma. Shakir's father and wife help him to irrigate the plants and land and to run the business. His monthly profit is 320 Azerbaijani Manat (AZN).

Shakir has applied for a loan of 1500 AZN to purchase seeds and fertilizers. This will be his third loan with AqroInvest and he has a good client history.
