Ikrom
M. Ikrom is 24 years old. He is married and has two kids. This gentleman is a vegetable producer with more than six years of experience. Ikrom works all day on the land. He is involved in the whole production process, including post-harvest and selling. It is relevant to explain that the production of vegetables requires adequate fertilizer in order to generate the expected harvest. Nutrients and chemical fertilizers are needed throughout the process.

Currently, Ikrom is having difficulties getting into the market with his product due to the fact that he doesn't have enough organic matter to incorporate into the soil. There isn’t enough fertilizer and the soils are poor in nutrients. It is for these reasons that his harvests aren’t going well. Ikrom lacks the capital to be able to correctly prepare the land and thereby achieve a successful harvest so that he can sell his vegetables in the different markets. He is hoping for your generosity and is very thankful to all of you.


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.
