A loan of $1,600 helped to buy iron to make and sell household goods and improve his living conditions.


Murod's story

Murod is an ambitious man. He is married and a father of four children. He doesn't have a higher education since the option was not available to him after he finished high school.

He learned from a master how to make household goods out of iron, a business he has been working in for more than 20 years. He has 'golden hands,' knows all the intricacies of his craft, and supports his family with his earnings.

Murod plans to develop his business to increase profits. He is requesting a loan of TJS 15,000 (somoni) to purchase wood and galvanized iron to augment his working capital. He awaits your kindness and hopes for your charity.

Murod is a returning borrower and has a positive credit history. He is asking for a loan for the 11th time through Kiva’s field partner, IMON International.

He awaits your support.


This loan is special because:

It allows Tajik artisans to support their families and carry on important handicraft traditions.
