For the last 6 years, he has been growing vegetable crops, mainly potatoes. At the same time, he works as a truck driver and hauls loads. He is seeking a loan for his crop-growing business. He wants to buy seed potatoes and mineral fertilizers. In the future, he plans to expand his business and establish his own dehkan farm. A dehkan farm is a small private farm owned by an individual or group that is worked by several people, on which the main crops grown are cotton, wheat or vegetables that account for 60% of irrigated land use in Tajikistan.
