Parvana's story

Parvana has been involved in selling various mixed goods (pens, notebooks, flashlights, glue, face and hand lotions, etc.) in Azerbaijan's regions. Stores with mixed merchandise are common. She needs 1600 AZN to expand her store and increase the quantity of shelves for merchandise in order to develop her business. Parvana is 37 years old, married and has three children. She and her large family live in the Fuzuli region. They moved from the city of Fuzuli and are IDPs.

An internally displaced person (IDP) is a person who have been forced or obliged to flee his home, in particular as a result of an armed conflict, violence, violations of human rights or natural or human-made disasters, and who, unlike a refugee, has not crossed an internationally recognized State border and remains on the territory of his own country.
