Bakir's story

Bakir is a 53-year-old man and married with three children. He is an IDP (Internally Displaced Person) and lives with his family in the Bilasuvar IDP Settlement. He receives 120 AZN in financial support from the government every month, but this is not enough to cover his family's needs.

Bakir breeds cattle; he sells milk and milk products as well as providing cattle for meat purposes to local butchers. He also raises sheep for meat. He has 15 years of experience in this field, thanks to his father who taught him how to look after cattle.

Bakir usually buys calves and raises and fattens them; he resells them in 5-6 months for profit at the local livestock bazaar. He sells milk and yogurt to his neighbors. Milk and meat sales brings in 100 AZN a month. Milk, yogurt, beef and mutton are very popular products in Azerbaijan. People use meat in everyday national dishes such as pilau and dolma and yogurt sauce is very popular.

Income from livestock farming is not enough to cover the basic needs of Bakir's children. Bakir applied for 1,000 AZN to purchase two cattle and one milk cow. This will be his second loan, and he has good client history.
