On June 19th, the opening ceremony of the next pilot livelihood project implemented by AzRIP, though the State Service on the Management of Agricultural Projects and Credits under the Minisry of Agriculture of Azerbaijan Republic which is co-funded by the Government of Azerbaijan and World Bank, took place in Garakhydyr community of Goychay rayon. Garakhydyr community is situated at 18 km distance from Goychay rayon center. Number of community population is 1684. Although there was a favorable condition for the community and the surrounding villages to get engaged with livelihood projects (especially the development of the nursery-greenhouse area), no steps were taken in this area so far. In the past, the village used to satisfy their demand for seedlings by bringing it from neighboring regions or producing very small number of seedlings internally. In order to solve this problem and through the support of AzRIP, the greenhouse was installed in 720 square meters of area. Additionally one small building of 28 square meters was constructed for workers and the night guard. It is planned to plant 420 pcs of seedlings in each square meter of the greenhouse, thus having grown 176,400 tomato seedlings seasonally. The Community Business Group of Garakhydyr community, who was elected by secret ballot at the community-wide meeting, was already registered as a Limited Liability Company to provide a private manufacturing and services. Thus, community members became entrepreneurs. Due to this fact, employment and income opportunities for families
is increased. It is envisioned that implementation of this project will have positive impact on the economic situation of families and incomes of the population will increase by 15%. During the first year of operations the enterprise will satisfy the demand for seedling by 30% and gradually this figure will grow up to 50-60%.
The opening ceremony was attended by the representatives of Goychay Rayon ExCom, Mr. Orxan Mikayil from the Ministry of Agriculture, as well as Mr.Daniel Owen, World Bank’s Task manager for AzRIP, Ms.Gulbaniz Ganbarova, AzRIP Deputy Director, Capacity Building and Community Development Manager, Mr.Khudayar Gulmaliyev, AzRIP 2 Program Specialist for Lower Shirvan zone, Mr.Gurban Ibrahimov, Municipal Chief of Garakhydyr, the village elders and intellectuals, as well as the AzRIP Baku and regional staff.
