The need to improve his income is the reason Makhsud is courteously requesting this loan. He is a very responsible and hardworking young man who for about six years has been dedicated to the business of buying and selling kid’s clothing. So far he has accessed loans from IMON International three times and has seen his business expand. With the income, he said he was able to improve his standard of living, which is most important for Maksud. Today he is requesting a loan of 13,000 TJS to expand the business so that he can generate more income. Maksud is very grateful to everyone who is helping him achieve his dreams.

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.
