A loan of $2,550 helped to buy children's clothes that will allow him a higher income and be able to pay the doctor bills from when his newborn son was born.

Ilham's story

Ilham is an IDP (Internally Displaced Person) from Fuzuli. He lives in the Fuzuli region, which is close to the occupied border. Ilham is 34 years old, married, and has two children, an 8-year-old daughter and a newborn son. His daughter goes to school. Ilham's daughter wants to become a doctor. His wife stays at home, so he is the only one making an income. This is Ilham's second loan from Kiva. He started his new business 8 month ago, selling children clothes. Now he needs a 2000 AZN (Azerbaijan New Manat) loan to buy clothes and shoes for children. He wants to use the money from his new business for his newborn son because he was born 3 months early and they need money to pay the doctors that saved their son. Murad is thankful to Komak and Kiva for supporting him again.
