He is not working, because study in the university takes all his time. Only his father is working in the family and his family did not expect that Altan would enter a paid faculty. But after school, his test scores were not high enough to get an education free of charge.
To pay the first two years, Altan applied for a 1,700 AZN loan. His dream is to start working as soon as he feels that he can compound his education and work without any losses.

About Aqroinvest:Aqroinvest Credit Union was founded in 2001 by a group of 32 farmers from Imishli. It has since grown to become the largest credit union in Azerbaijan, owned by its more than 5,400 borrowers and boasting a portfolio of nearly US$12 million.
AqroInvest is focused on providing loans to the following groups of people: rural farmers, people living in distant southern villages with little or no access to finance and internally displaced people and refugees, many of whom lost their homes and livelihoods during the violent conflicts in the 1990s.
In May 2011, Aqroinvest started a new project with Kiva proving higher education loans to students. The project gives students the support and financing they need to continue their education and helps pay for tuition fees at various universities in Azerbaijan. Aqroinvest is the first credit union in the country to offer students loans.
