Nabi's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped To purchase calves.
The agriculture business is one that requires much effort for the simple reason that it requires exposure to the sun, the physical exertion of moving animals from one place to another, as well as the work it takes to tend to various crops. Nabi U. has dedicated himself for 20 years to cattle raising which supports his humble family who rely on him. Currently Nabi has turned to IMON International for a loan of $1350 USD to purchase calves that he can raise. It’s important to note that the granting of this loan will not only benefit him, but also his children and wife whom he loves greatly. More about Tajikistan and IMON International Tajikistan is perhaps best known for its rich history, which includes a key post along the Silk Road; the end of Alexander the Great's rule; and with it’s famous great thinkers, philosophers, scientists and poets as: Rudaki, Ibn Sina (Avicenna), Firdousi, Omar Haiyam, Jomi, Mavlavi Rumi and many others. 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.
