Shukur's story

Shukur lives with difficult living conditions and a low income, but he has a kind heart and good disposition. He is from Tajikistan, 55 years old, married, and the father of four children. He has been farming crops such as onions, watermelon, and wheat for over six years. He sells the harvest at market, where there is high demand for his quality produce. His wife helps with the business too. He would like to grow more crops in order to expand his business and better support his family. He is asking for a 3500 somoni loan to buy a hectare of land. The income which he receives as a result will be used to improve his living conditions. He needs and is grateful for your generosity.
