Gufronboy's story

N. Gufronboy has been dedicated to the business of cattle ranching for the last six years. This business requires a lot of dedication due to the fact that it demands a lot of effort to carry out the breeding. This is also true since it requires the strict control of every one of the animals and, at the same time, the feed and care of those that are older. It is necessary to emphasize that, through this business, Gufronboy is able to maintain his spouse and his three children. It is because of this that he is soliciting a loan through IMON International. The loan will allow him to be buy more animals, which he will raise and sell in the market. 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 B.C. 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.
