Hiloliddin's story

“Responsible fatherhood” is a term that has been converted into concrete fact in Hiloliddin D.'s life. He has always responded satisfactorily to his role as provider for his two children, for whom he cares with much love, in the company of his wife, who is always supportive of him. Hiloliddin works in agricultural activities and has some cattle. At the moment, he is working intensively at his agricultural activities and taking care of his fields. His wife is helping take care of the cows and also sells their milk. They do all this hard work because they want to give an education to each of their two children. They would also like to open a small business some day; until then they will continue working in their fields. To do this, Hiloliddin is requesting a loan of 8000 Somoni to buy seeds and mineral fertilizer.

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.
