Abdurahmon
Abdurahmon is very demanding in his work, having been a farmer since he was young. Today, as the head of a household, he works tirelessly to generate a stable income. He cares for his animals, getting up very early to gather grass so he can keep his livestock well fed. Abdurahmon sells the milk they produce as well as the grass that he cultivates on his land. He is seeking a loan for the purchase of calves to expand his business. Please support Abdurahmon’s efforts so he can continue to improve his standard of living.


More about Tajikistan and IMON International:


Tajikistan is perhaps best known for its epic mountain passes and its rich history which includes its place as a key post along the Silk Road and events at the end of Alexander the Great's rule. It has produced famous thinkers, philosophers, scientists and poets, such as Rudaki, Ibn Sina (Avicenna), Firdousi, Omar Haiyam, Jomi, Mavlavi Rumi and many others. The country is home to communities that still speak the ancient Sogdian language and a civilization that dates back to the 4th millennium BC. 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. A civil war, which ignited soon after its independence from the U.S.S.R., further damaged an 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 productivity and the manufacturing sector, nearly two-thirds of the population still live in abject poverty.
