A loan of $3,000 helped to purchase new modern curtains to sell.

Amonjon's story

F. Amonjon is 23 years old. He is not married and lives with his parents. Amonjon has been selling curtains for 5 years together with his mother and has gained a rich experience in this kind of business.

Initially Amonjon started with selling clothing with the capital of 100 USD. Gradually he expanded his business and decided to sell curtains as there are few competitors in this kind of business. He has a good taste in choosing curtains when purchasing them which allows him to have a good clientele.

Amonjon wants to continue growing his business to improve his quality of life. For this reason he is requesting a loan of 3000 USD which he will use to buy merchandise and offer products more rapidly as well as fill his pending orders.

Amonjon and his family thank you very much for helping them succeed.

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. 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.
