Elya is 50 years old. She is married and has one schoolboy, age 12. The source of income for her family is agriculture. She raises livestock and sells milk products. She launched this business by buying one cow with a calf. Thanks to Elya’s hard work, her farm now includes three heads of cattle with their young.
To develop her business further, Elya needs to buy medicine for her animals. There is a risk to her cattle of being consumed by disease. Elya has applied for a loan in the amount of 1,200 AZN to purchase medicine, as well as to buy animal feed with the remaining balance. Elya plans to use her revenues to further increase her livestock. In the future, she plans to provide a decent education for her son.
