Narzullo's story

B. Narzullo is 46 years old. He has lived for 20 years with the mother of his three children. His parents taught him the art of cultivating the land and he has always tried to sow his hectares so that he would have a crop in every season.

At this time Narzullo is sowing potatoes and wheat. He says that agricultural work needs much patience and luck, because there are seasons where there is no profit and other seasons are very good but either way he has to keep sowing, profitable or not.

Narzullo is a client who is now working for the third time with IMON International, being very responsible in his payments. He asked for a loan of 2000 USD that will be invested in his crop supplies. Be an important part of the growth of Narzullo’s business!

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.
