Tohirjon
A. Tohirjon is 30 years old, and is married with two children. Tohirjon has a middle special education and his specialization is engineering. However engineering salaries are small, and with this salary he has to feed his family and pay for his children's education, so he went into agrobusiness instead.


Tohirjon works hard to cultivate his products, such as potatoes, onions and carrots. He works from early morning till late at night in the hope of having a rich harvest. Tohirjon sells his products in the market where they are always in high demand due to their good quality. His work fills him with great optimism and allows him to help his beloved children. His goal is to improve the quality of his agricultural products even more and expand his business. Today, Tohirjon is requesting a loan of $3000 USD to buy necessary materials for saving his products because he wants to sell them later when the price for them will increase. Let's help Tohirjon as he works hard to improve the quality of life for his family.


More about Tajikistan

Tajikistan, a key post on the Silk Road, is perhaps best known for its rich history. It was the location for the end of Alexander the Great's rule, and is known for its great thinkers, philosophers, scientists and poets such as Rudaki, Ibn Sina (Avicenna), Firdousi, Omar Haiyam, Jomi, Mavlavi Rumi and many others. The country, with its epic mountain passes, is home to communities that still speak the ancient Sogdian language and a civilization that dates back to the fourth millennium BC. Even today, it is a complex mix of the Islamic faith, Soviet culture, New West culture and Central Asian traditions.


However, Tajikistan is also the poorest of the former Soviet republics. The civil war, which ignited soon after its independence from the USSR, damaged the already weak economy. In addition, 93 per cent of the country is mountainous and only 7 per cent of the land is arable. These conditions have resulted in high levels of unemployment and have forced hundreds of thousands of people 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.
