Sakir's story

Sakir is a 46-year-old married man with three children. He is an internationally displaced person (IDP) and lives with his family in Bilasuvar, an IDP settlement. He breeds sheep and cattle and sells them for meat to local butchers. Sakir has more than 10 years of experience in this field thanks to his father, who taught him how to best look after cattle.

Sakir usually buys small cows or lambs, raises and fattens them for five to six months, and resells them for a more profitable price in the local livestock bazaar. Meat selling brings him an income of 80 AZN per month. People use beef and mutton in everyday national dishes like pilau and dolma and always use yoghurt souse. Sheep wool is also very popular, and blankets are made of sheep wool.

This is the only source of income for his family and it's not enough to cover the basic needs of his beloved children. Sakir applied for a loan of 1500 AZN to purchase one cow and 15 sheep. This will be his second loan from Aqroinvest; Sakir has a good client history.
