A loan of $2,550 helped to buy three cattle and two milk cows.

Maarif's story

Maarif is 47, married, and he has five kids, two sons and three daughters. He earns a living by breeding cows and cattle, and sells their milk and milk products as well as meat to local butchers. He has 20 years of experience in this field, thanks to his father, who taught him how to look after cattle.

Maarif usually buys small cows, raises and fattens them for 5-6 months, and resells them for a profitable price to butchers. Milk and yogurt he sells to neighbors. He earns about 180 AZN a month, in part because milk, yogurt, and meat are very popular products in Azerbaijan. People use meat in everyday national dishes, such as pilau and dolma, and always use yogurt. Milk products are seen as very healthy and used daily.

Because his family has only one source of income, Maarif is requesting a loan of 2,000 AZN to buy three cattle and two milk cows.

This will be his second loan. He has a good client history, and plans to use the additional income he earns to care for his family.
