Elshad's story

Elshad is a 28-year-old married man. He lives with his family in an internally displaced persons (IDP) settlement, as he is an IDP. Elshad raises seasonal fruits and vegetables such as corn, cucumber, tomatoes, apples, pears, peaches, plums, and cherries. He has two years of experience, but in spite of the short period he has been in this business, he has gained respect from local vendors because he produces a good organic crop without chemical fertilizers.

People use fresh vegetables everyday and consider them healthy. Many national dishes are made of vegetables, like pilau and dolma. Fresh fruits are served on every Azerbaijani family's table and also used to make fresh punch.

Elshad sells his crop from his yard and sometimes takes it to the local bazaar. His monthly income is 100 AZN and he would like to expand his business and purchase more seeds and fertilizers to improve the quality of his crops to increase his sales. For this purpose, he applied for a loan of 1500 AZN. This will be his second loan and he has a positive client history.
