More information about this loan
This loan is part of IMON International's startup loan program called Sarchashma ("spring" in the local language). Sarchashma loans are tailored to women who have feasible business ideas but lack the funds to get started. In addition to credit, these women also receive special training from the National Association of Business Women of Tajikistan to develop business plans. They also have the opportunity to participate in IMON's "Woman Entrepreneur, Get Ahead" program, a three-day intensive training course. By funding this loan, you are supporting borrowers who have limited options to start and grow small businesses. This has the potential to alleviate the effects of poverty, significantly improving borrowers' incomes and their families' quality of life.
