Safargul's story

Safargul has been working hard in agriculture for about two years. It's an activity that gives her pleasure, as she receives income purely from her own labour, which she likes. Safargul doesn't work the land alone - her son and daughter, who are 25 and 17, help her. Safargul is the mother of five children - two daughters and three sons. The other children are in school. Her oldest son is married. His son and his wife live in his parents' house and help his mother. Safargul is 42. She is glad to have a big and happy family. Safargul grows agricultural crops. She wants to sow her fields quickly, before winter arrives. Winter in Tajikistan comes later than in other countries and therefore she still has a chance to plant a winter harvest. But she doesn't have enough money to achieve this. She is requesting a loan with the hope that you will help her to buy seeds and tractor fuel.
