Nabi
Nabi is 54 years old and he is a hard worker. He is marrid with 3 children. Nabi has been farming since 2004. He has six years of experience, and he has been able to support his family by learning how to take care and manage his crops in the short growing season.

Nabi aspires to have more farming equipment and more farming supplies so that he can work his land much more productively. Due to lack of funds has not been able to do so. He is asking for a loan to purchase more farming supplies, such as herbicides, fertilizer and other necessities, in order to appropriately manage his crops, and, in the end, make a profit. This request is in support of making his dream come true, and Nabi is asking for help from your generous heart.

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.

IMON's History
