Ulmas's story

Ulmas R. is 50 years old. She is a self-sacrificing mother with two children. Ulmas began dedicating herself to agricultural labor, which failed due to the low income of her husband. Thanks to good fortune she can smile in the face of this event and has hopes of being able to economically recuperate. Ulmas is requesting 4,000 Tajikistan Somoni (TJS) to invest in purchasing cattle that will allow her to increase her earnings. This way Ulmas will be able to finish remodeling her home in order to give her family better security and not be easy prey for the thieves that have had the opportunity of disturbing her home. Collaborate with this wife and mother so that she can achieve her goals. More about Tajikistan and IMON International Tajikistan Tajikistan is perhaps best known for its rich history and diverse culture, which is a mix of the Islamic faith, Soviet influence, and Central Asian traditions. It served as a key post along the Silk Road and marked the end of Alexander the Great's extensive rule. It was the birthplace of the great Persian poet Rudaki and famous Islamic philosopher Ibn Sina. And it is home to epic mountain passes, communities that still speak the ancient Sogdian language, and a civilization that dates back to the 4th millennium BC. 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.
