Gulshoda
Gulshoda is a woman with much courage who strives to provide for her four children, including food on the table and an education. She has always worked to provide every member of her home with health and well-being. Every day, she goes to the fields, where she is now growing potatoes, wheat and maize.

Gulshoda was taught farming techniques by her parents as a child and the nature of her work and her eagerness to get ahead in life motivate her in tending her farm every day. Consequently, her farm products are consistently of better and higher quality. Gulshoda needs your support, with this loan, in investing in high quality seeds and fertilizer and improving her harvest. This is why she requires a loan of $900. Let's support this great effort by a mother who wants the best for her children.

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.

IMON's History

Since December 2007, IMON International has worked closely with Kiva and Kiva lenders to ensure that poor and low-income clients represent a viable business proposition. Funds raised through Kiva have already been distributed to thousands of IMON International's clients and will continue to provide thousands more with permanent access to the varied financial services they need.
