Khujayor's story

K. Khujayor is 50 years old. He is married and has 5 children.

Khujayor sells cattle. As a rule he purchases small cattle in the central market, feeds them and then resells them at higher prices in the local market.

Having been in this business for 5 years he knows very well how to choose the animals, how to breed them and look after them. He gets up every morning in order to feed the animals and to look after them. His knowledge and skills allow him to make his business successful and to generate a considerable, stable income for his large family.

Khujayor is planning to enlarge the stock and to purchase more cattle. For this purpose he requests $700 that will purchase two young cattle. You can become an important part in Khujayor family's life and he deeply appreciates the trust and support you are giving him.

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.
