Afruz's story

Afruz is 58 years old and an IDP. She is a widow and lives with her only son in an IDP settlement. The son helps his mother earning money as a laborer. Afruz raises fruits and vegetables in her garden and sells them at local bazaar. That is Afruz’s business and she has working in this area for 30 years. Her monthly income is 160 AZN.

People prefer to buy fruits and vegetables from private gardens, because they are naturally raised and cheaper. People know that such products are always fresh and healthy; they are not grown with pesticides and harmful. During long years of experience, Afruz learned how to cover her customer demand. So selling fruits and vegetables grown at home is popular and cheaper for people to buy them in bazaars than in big markets.

Afruza’s income doesn’t allow covering her customer's demands. She is planning to expand her garden and grow more seasonal fruits and vegetables. Afruza wants her son to get a high education and have a good life. She applied for 1500 AZN in order buy new fertilizer and expand her business.
