A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase seeds and mineral fertilizer.


Niyoz's story

N. Niyoz has been dedicated to the activity of agriculture from a young age. He has attended to this activity with great strength. It is necessary to highlight that this gentleman is very involved in his work because he has an obligation to take care of his three children. The need that Niyoz is encountering now is that he doesn't have the financial capital to invest in the crops and for this reason, he applied to IMON International to obtain a loan of $1,000 USD to buy mineral fertilizer in order to prepare his land for the upcoming season. Niyoz promises to repay the loan without any violations and thanks everyone for supporting 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 fourth 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.
