Shukufe's story

Shukufe is a 58-year-old married woman and a mother of 2 sons and 2 daughters. She works raising cattle that she fattens up and then sells in livestock and cattle markets. She also raises them to produce milk that’s then used to make dairy products, like custard, butter, and cheese. Her husband also helps her in this business. Shukufe and her husband started a farm 15 years ago. The business takes a lot of effort, but together they run it successfully. Shukufe sells the meat in the central bazaar where the demand for meat is high. People in Azerbaijan consume a lot of meat because it is used in most dishes. Some traditional meals like kebabs, dolma and others require beef in their preparation. Her profit is about 170 AZN monthly. She is applying for new loan of 1,800 AZN in order to expand the business by buying new calves. She plans to raise these calves, fatten them and sell them for meat for the coming traditional holidays, when the demand for beef will increase. This is Shukufe's sixth loan.
