Mahammad's story

Mahammad, 49, is married and has three children. He receives a pension. He is an internally displaced person (IDP) and lives with his family in the Bilasuvar IDP Settlement. Mahammad is the only person in his family to earn an income.

Mahammad breeds cattle to sell to local butchers. Additionally, he sells milk and milk products. Mahammad has more than 20 years of experience in this field, thanks to his father, who taught him how to best look after cattle.

Mahammad usually buys small cattle and raises and fattens them up for five to six months. Then, he resells them for a profitable price at the local livestock bazaar. He sells the milk and yoghurt to his neighbors. Selling milk and beef allows Mahammad to earn 120 AZN per month.

Milk and yoghurt, as well as beef, are very popular products in Azerbaijan. People use beef in everyday national dishes, such as pilau and dolma, and always use yoghurt sauce. Milk products are considered to be very healthy and are also eaten in everyday life.

Mahammad's income is not enough to cover the basic needs of his beloved children. He is applying for a1200 AZN loan to purchase one dairy cow, one beef cow, and fodder.
