Pirnazar
Pirnazar J. is a hardworking father with responsibility of taking care of his wife and three children, who are the driving force for his work. Every day, early in the morning, Pirnazar leaves to take care of his farmland, which he irrigates and fertilizes so his crops will produce, and then when the harvest comes he can sell good quality products to sell for his income. His wife and children also help him with his business. One of this couple’s dreams is to educate their children with higher education so that one day they’ll become great people. They are asking for the current loan to buy seed, fertilizer and other supplies necessary for farming their land and increasing their crop production.

More about Tajikistan and IMON International

Tajikistan is perhaps best known for its rich history, which includes a key post along the Silk Road; the end of Alexander the Great's rule; and with it’s famous great thinkers, philosophers, scientists and poets as: Rudaki, Ibn Sina (Avicenna), Firdousi, Omar Haiyam, Jomi, Mavlavi Rumi and many others. 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.
