ANAMA TOGETHER WITH IOM CONDUCTED SURVEY

19-27 November 2015, ANAMA together with the International Organization of Migration in Azerbaijan (IOM-Azerbaijan) conducted the survey of mine victims who took part on trainings and get credits after that. The Community Based Small Business Trainings and Micro-credit Revolving Fund for Azerbaijan Mine Survivors Project has been implemented in 2008, 2010 and 2013 years. As a result of this project, 100 mine survivors trained in basics of business activity and provided by micro-credits for start-up of their small businesses. Mine victims from Imishli, Beylagan, Bilasuvar, Saatli and Aghcabedi regions participated at this survey. The main goal of this survey was to get the thoughts of mine victims about the project conducted in previous years (are they happy with the amount of loan, credit term, interest rate etc), further plans and terms of micro-credits if the project will be possible again in the future.
