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).

A loan of $1,800 helped to buy one milk cow, two cattle and fodder.

Vidadi's story

Vidadi is a 39-year-old man who is married and has four children. He is IDP (an internally displaced person) and lives in the Bilasuvar IDP settlement. Vidadi has bred cattle and cows for the last eight years. He works as school teacher and his salary is 120 AZN, which is too low to cover family needs.

Vidadi usually buys small calves, raises and fattens them for five or six months and then resells for a more profitable price in the livestock bazaar. His monthly income is 200 AZN and this business is the main source of financial income in his family. Beef is in very high demand in Azerbaijan and people use it in everyday dishes like pilau and dolma. Vidadi also keeps milk cows for personal use and for selling to neighbors.

He wants to expand his business and improve the living conditions of his family. He applied for a 1,400 AZN loan to purchase one milk cow, two cattle and fodder. This will be his third loan from AqroInvest CU and he has a good client history.
