A loan of $3,000 helped to purchase seeds, fertilizer, fuels and lubricants.

Bekmurot's story

A. Bekmurot is married, has eight children, and is a farmer. Not fortunate enough to attend school, he very early on embraced working in the fields. Due to this work, he is somehow meeting the needs of his large family. His wife and elder sons also help to support their household with his business.

Today, exhausted from crude farming methods, Bekmurot brings in less and less income, which has a negative impact on his household. He is requesting a loan of 3,000 USD in order to buy seeds, fertilizer, fuels and lubricants to augment his crop yields. All of this will then allow him to increase his income and improve his family’s standard of living, especially his dearest children for the sake of whom he is working hard.

The well being of Bekmurot’s family and his business are in your hands. Bekmurot and his family are sincerely grateful for your support.

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.
