Numonjon's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped To purchase young cattle to expand his business.
Married and a father of two children, Numonjon was born on May 12, 1967 in Dushanbe. Coming from an area where cattle-raising is popular, Numonjon has been selling cattle since 2001. He buys them in his village from the farmers who raise them and then sells them at the markets. As his business capital is limited, Numonjon buys just a few and then after he sells those, he returns to buy more. Today he would like to expand his business by increasing his capital so that he can maximize his profits. For this reason, Numonjon is requesting a loan of $3000 to purchase young cattle. This will be his second loan with IMON International, and his evaluation shows he is qualified to receive the loan. 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.
