Sohirdjon
G. Sohirdjon is 52 years of age. Since he was young his father taught him to work on the land where, together, they produced wheat, corn and different kinds of vegetables. This constitutes the economic base of the settlers of Kumsangir due to the characteristic botany of the zone.

For five years Sohirdjon has been dedicated to the production of corn and onions as his main economic activity and this activity has permitted his family to move forward. At present Sohirdjon is requesting a loan of $3000 USD that he will use for buying agricultural supplies in order to have a better harvest and be able to sell his crops for a better price in the market.

Sohirdjon is counting on your help. He deeply appreciates the support that you are giving him and promises to repay the loan with accuracy and on time.


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 B.C. 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
