A loan of $1,275 helped to buy seeds and mineral fertilizers.


Sobir's story

He lives in harsh conditions and has a low income, but boasts a good heart and a good-natured temper. He is Sobir -- a 52-year-old married man from Tajikistan with two children. For more than 23 years he's made a living by growing crops like potatoes, wheat, carrots and so forth. His goods are high-quality and in high demand and that enables him to sell his harvests on the market for a profit. His wife helps with running the business.

Expanding his business will enable him to fulfill more of his family's needs but for that he needs to reap bigger harvests. He's asking for a loan in order to purchase seeds and mineral fertilizers. He's waiting and hoping for your help.
