2. Income Generation:

The Quick Impact Income Project (QIIP) which aims to improve the standard of living of IDPs through economic independence, continues to proceed well with 1,560 small businesses having now been established or expanded since the project commenced in November 1995. In Gange, Gazakh and Mingechevir 41 new contracts were signed for startups during September, with 27 secondary/advanced loans also being given. In the Baku office 23 new and 32 secondary/advanced contracts were signed. In total $40,390 was disbursed in loans and $2,360 in grants during this month.

579 businesses have now graduated from the project having successfully met all the requirements laid out in their contract with WVAz, including paying back the loan over a six month period, and reinvesting 15% of the profits back into the business.

3. Shelter Rehabilitation:

The SCF/USAID funded Community Shelter Rehabilitation Project continues to progress well with 52 of the initial 56 buildings now having been completed. Work continues on the remaining four buildings included under the current project, centring on electricity supply, cabling and water pipes.

The extension to the project will enable work to be carried out on a further 14 builings, targetting at least 5,632 IDPs or refugees. This will be carried out in a similar manner as to the current work, aiming to ensure shelters have adequate levels of safety, weather resistance, sanitation and access to basic services, as well as mobilising the community to take responsibility for the care of their living conditions.
