Tuichiboy
A. Tuichiboy is a very courageous man who manages tough jobs like raising sheep and agriculture. He's the father of four adult children and has the responsibility of supporting his family and providing them with everything that they need. In spite of his difficult economic situation, and after much time, he has been able to get ahead in his business through the purchase of sheep to breed them on his property. His greatest goal now is to improve his economic situation and provide a better way of life for his family. It's for this reason that Tuichiboy is requesting a loan from IMON International to purchase sheep so that he can breed them.



More about Tajikistan
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 its famous great thinkers, philosophers, scientists and poets such 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. Although 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.
