Shavkat K. is 33 years old. He is married (his wife's name is Umriniso), and he is the father of 4 children.

Shavkat works hard on the farm, along with Umriniso, in order to make his children happy and to provide them with a good education. In his farming operation, he grows and sells crops such as tomatoes, onions, potatoes, cucumbers, carrots, apricots, peaches, and apples.

With the onset of the sowing season, he is planning to sow onions, potatoes, and carrots, which is why he is seeking a loan. In particular, he is requesting a loan in the amount of 2,000 Somoni ($600), to be repaid within 12 months, in order to buy mineral fertilizer and seeds. After gathering his yield, he wants to sell them to local inhabitants at prices that are lower than in the market. He promises to repay the loan in a timely manner. Shavkat and his hopeful wife are counting on your help, and he expresses his deep gratitude to everyone for supporting him.
