Bahodur's story

Bahodur A. is 30 years old, married, and lives with his wife and 3 children. He has been a farmer for the past 4 years, which he began with the goal of supporting his household and above all to satisfy the needs of his children. For Sayali, agriculture is an activity that he likes to do. Within it, vegetable production is what he likes most, as it is easier to cultivate these plants and the product is profitable in season, which is annually. But the earnings are greater and beneficial for every farmer, especially when buyers purchase the production in great quantities and the expense of transporting the products is avoided as the buyers come to harvest and take it away themselves. Now Sayali wishes to borrow money which he wants to invest in seeds, fertilizer, fuels and lubricants. Sayali is sincerely grateful to all of you.

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.
