Mamur's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase more cattle.
Mamur M. is 37 years old. He is married with four children. Mamur has opted to make his life in his land and work hard and grow with it. That is how he decided to rear cows and dedicated himself to agriculture. He has been doing this kind of work for a very long time for he comes from a family with an entirely agricultural background and now he is in charge of handing down all that experience to his children. Today Mamur wishes to increase the number of his cattle. He would like to buy cows with the hope of increasing his income and the well-being of his home. That’s why he is requesting a loan of $750 USD. Extend your solidarity to Mamur so that he can move forth successfully and accomplish all his goals. 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. IMON's History Since December 2007, IMON International has worked closely with Kiva and Kiva lenders to ensure that poor and low income clients represent a viable business proposition.
