Askinaz's story

Askinaz S., the mother of six children, fled to the safety of the Bilasuvar Internally Displaced Settlement in 1993 during the Azerbaijan-Armenian conflict. Five years later, she began a business raising livestock, and although she started with just one cow, she now has many. Every morning Askinaz arises early to allow her beloved cows to graze among the hills all day in hopes that they will return happy and satisfied.

Assisted by her children and husband, she is highly motivated to continue in this arduous work, as the resulting income allows her and her family to sustain themselves, a source of great satisfaction for Askinaz. She is now requesting a loan that will enable her to purchase more livestock to expand her business. With your support, Askinaz will be able to accomplish her business goals and eventually fund the education of all her children.
