Shamil's story

Shamil is 39 years old and lives with his wife, three children and retired parents. Samil has a big family and numerous problems. Together with his wife, they just do their best to provide normal living conditions for all of them. Samil is an IDP (internally displaced person) and lives with his family in the Bilasuvar IDP settlement.

He raises sheep and sells them for meat. He has been doing this business for six years and is a very hardworking person. He puts a lot of effort into this activity, because he wants to support his family without lacking financially.

Samil is keeping a flock of sheep in his own yard. He fattens them and takes their meat to the central bazaar, where butchers and customers purchase it. People use mutton for traditional dishes like kababs, dolmas, pilovs, etc.

This is going to be his fifth loan. He requires 2,000 AZN to purchase 15 sheep in order to sell more meat in the winter. Shamil is optimistic about this loan, because in winter more people consume meat, due to the holidays and increased customers in restaurants.
