A loan of $1,925 helped to build a greenhouse for her garden.


Tahira's story

Tahira is a 55-year-old refugee. She is a widow and lives with a daughter and a son in an IDP settlement. She is a farmer and raises seasonal vegetables such as cucumbers, potatoes, tomatoes and greens. Her monthly income is 120 AZN.

Tahira has worked in this field for 34 years and she knows everything of farming. She also knows that seasonal vegetables aren't as profitable as she wants. But unfortunately she cannot raise other kinds of vegetables because of the cold climate in her region. People have high demands for fresh vegetables, especially greens because they are very good for health. People also use greens to prepare such national dishes as green qutab, dovgha, doghramaj, etc.

Tahira’s income is not enough for her to cover her family’s demands. She decided to build a greenhouse for her vegetables and buy additional vegetable seeds. That is why she applied for 1500 AZN loan from the credit union. She believes that this will help her to increase her income and be able to escape debts in future.
