A loan of $1,925 helped to buy thirteen sheep plus fodder for them.


Tehran's story

Tehran is 42 years old, married and has four children. He is an IDP (internally displaced person) and lives with his family in Bilasuvar IDP Settlement. He receives 60 AZN in monthly financial support from the government. He breeds sheep for their wool and meat, selling the latter to local butchers and makes 120 AZN a month. His wife is a cleaner whose salary is very low. Altogether, this amount is too low to cover his family’s needs.


Tehran has more than fifteen years of experience in livestock breeding, thanks to his father who taught him the best ways to look after sheep. He usually buys lambs, raises and fattens them in four to five months, then sells them at a profit at the local livestock bazaar.


In Azerbaijan people use meat in everyday national dishes such as pilau and dolmas and always use yoghurt for a sauce. Mutton is considered to be part of a healthy daily diet, while wool is used by local women to make blankets and bed mattresses.


Tehran is applying for a 1,500 AZN loan through Aqroinvest to buy thirteen sheep plus fodder for them. This will be his second loan, and he has a good client history.
