Habil's story

Habil, age 30, is a cattle breeder. He is an IDP (internally displaced person) living with his wife and son in the Bilasuvar IDP Settlement. Habil breeds cows and cattle, and he sells milk and milk products as well as selling cattle for meat purposes to local butchers. He also raises sheep for meat purposes. Habil has five years of experience in this field, thanks to his father who expertly taught him how to look after cattle.

Habil usually buys small cattle, raises and fattens them for 5-6 months, and resells them at a more profitable price in the local livestock bazaar. He also sells milk and yogurt to his neighbors. Milk and meat sales bring him 100 AZN income per month. Milk and yogurt, as well as beef and mutton, are very popular products in Azerbaijan. People use meat in such everyday national dishes as pilau and dolma and always accompany these with yogurt sauce. Milk products are considered very healthy and are consumed daily.

This is the only source of financial income for the family, and Habil reports that it is not enough to cover the basic needs of his famaily. Habil has therefore applied for a loan in the amount of 2,000 AZN in order to purchase two cattle, two milk cows, and cattle fodder. This will be his second loan and he has a good client history.
