A loan of $1,550 helped to supply new kinds of fruit trees and grow them.


Shikhali's story

Shikhali is a 44-year-old refugee. He is married and has two sons and two daughters. His wife is a housekeeper and they live in an IDP settlement. He is a gardener and has raised seasonal fruits (apples, cherries, pears, etc.) and vegetables for 22 years. He sells his harvest at a local bazaar and gets 220 AZN monthly for this.

Gardening is in high demand in Azerbaijan because people have a high demand for fresh fruits and vegetables. They use fruits to make fresh juice and use vegetables to cook national dishes.

Shikali’s income doesn’t cover the family’s demands and he applied for a 1200 AZN loan in order to supply new kinds of fruit trees and grow them. He wants to diversify his assortment of groceries and increase his income.
