Mahbuba's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy mineral fertilizer, seeds, and to pay workers.

Mahbuba's story

Mahbuba is 59 years old and lives with her husband and her three children in Kanibadam, Tajikistan.

She was born into a family of farmers and is engaged in the farming business on a small plot of land. She has been doing this for 15 years. She is helped by her husband, and her children also help her in this business.

Mahbuba is preparing to sow cotton, potatoes, tomatoes, pumpkins, maize, and a variety of vegetables. She requested a loan to buy cotton, wheat seeds, and mineral fertilizers to work the land, and also to pay workers.

She will mix the fertilizers with the soil and start to plant the crops. Mahbuba hopes to finish sowing and get a rich harvest for the next season.

She needs your support to achieve her dreams.
