Sevindj is a 43-year-old single woman living with her parents and brother. Her family members have been internally displaced persons (IDP) from Füzuli city for 20 years, and are now living in the village of Asagi Abdurrahmanli, which is located in the Füzuli region.

Sevindj breeds cows, and her mother helps her in her business, selling their milk and milk products such as yogurt, cheese, etc. Sevindj now wants to buy more cows to expand her enterprise and is therefore requesting a loan of 2100 AZN (Azerbaijan New Manat).

Thankful for Kiva's help, Sevindj wants to build a big stall for her cows and start a sheep-breeding business in the future. She also wants to get married and have children.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan supports Komak clients who are designated as Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in 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. Azerbaijan is home to over 600,000 IDPs, who face limited access to employment adequate housing, water and electricity. Many of these people have also failed to qualify for loans through formal channels due to low income and lack of collateral. Komak has been working to support IDPs since 1999. By funding this loan, you are creating opportunities in extremely underserved communities.
