Rasad is 33 years of age. He is married and he has three kids who all go to school. Rasad is the only earning member of the family and as it is a competitive market; his earnings are not enough to provide sustenance.

Rasad decided to give financial assistance to his family by cultivating khurma (persimmons) in their own land. He applied for a loan of 1000 AZN from Aqroinvest CU. With this loan he wants to buy quality fertilizers. He has chosen this business as there is a good demand for khurma in their locality and in the present market.

In the future he wants to develop his business and earn more profit. His dreams are to provide higher education to his sons and to meet the expenses of their family with the profits from his business. Rasad sincerely thanks Aqroinvest and Kiva for the loan.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan is designed for clients residing in settlements for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Bilasuvar, Azerbaijan. An internally displaced person (IDP) is someone who has been forced to flee his or her home due to armed conflict, violence, human rights violations, or natural or manmade disasters, but who, unlike a refugee, has not crossed an international border (source: UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs). Many of these people have failed to qualify for loans through formal channels due to low income and lack of collateral. By funding this loan, you are creating opportunities and supporting economic development in extremely underserved communities. 

About Aqroinvest:

Aqroinvest Credit Union was founded in 2001 by a group of 32 farmers from Imishli. It has since grown to become the largest credit union in Azerbaijan, owned by its more than 5,400 borrowers and boasting a portfolio of nearly US$12 million.
AqroInvest is focused on providing loans to the following groups of people: rural farmers, people living in distant southern villages with little or no access to finance and internally displaced people and refugees, many of whom lost their homes and livelihoods during the violent conflicts in the 1990s.

In May 2011, Aqroinvest started a new project with Kiva proving higher education loans to students. The project gives students the support and financing they need to continue their education and helps pay for tuition fees at various universities in Azerbaijan. Aqroinvest is the first credit union in the country to offer students loans.
