Kumush
P. Kumush is 34 years old. She is married with 4 children. Kumush sells fabrics for sewing traditional dresses. She has been in this business for almost 8 years.



Kumush has very good taste and she is ready to advise her clients which textile to choose for this or that occasion. That is why she has her constant customers. Moreover, Kumush’s prices for fabrics are attractive for various levels of the population as she has the wide range of goods for any taste and any wallet. The income that she derives allows her to educate her dearest children to a higher level. She hopes that she can continue to provide for them so they will be able to receive an adequate education.



Now Kumush needs 4000 Somoni to purchase new fabrics in order to increase her range of goods for selling. She promises to repay the loan without any violation and expresses her gratitude to everyone supporting her. Your generosity can change their lives.



More about Tajikistan and IMON International



Tajikistan is known for its rich history, which includes 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.
