Radjab
M. Radjab is 48 years old and married. He and his wife have two children, both of whom are still young and attending school. They are farmers who own a plot of land in their village to grow different kinds of crops like wheat, potato, onion and other vegetables. They have been in this business since 2004. These crops are the main source of income for their family. To alleviate the hard physical labor and to expand the business, Radjab would like to apply for a loan to purchase seeds, fertilizer, fuels and lubricants.


More about Tajikistan and IMON International


Tajikistan is known for its rich history, which includes being a key post along the Silk Road and the end of Alexander the Great's rule. It has also produced great thinkers, philosophers, scientists and poets, including Rudaki, Avicenna, Ferdowsi, Omar Khayyam, Jomi and Rumi. The country is home to communities that still speak the ancient Sogdian language, epic mountain passes and a civilization that dates back to the 4th millennium BC. And, even today, it is a complex mixture of the Islamic faith, Soviet culture, New West culture and Central Asian traditions.


But Tajikistan is also the poorest of the former Soviet republics. The civil war, which ignited soon after its independence from the U.S.S.R., further damaged the already weak economy. In addition, 93% of the country is mountainous and only 7% of the land is arable. These conditions have resulted in high levels of unemployment and have forced hundreds of thousands to seek work in other countries, mainly Russia. While the people of Tajikistan are working to improve its agricultural production and manufacturing sector, nearly two-thirds of the population still live in abject poverty.
