A loan of $1,050 helped to rent equipment for harvesting and expansion of his corn field.

Safarmahmad's story

Safarmahmad is married and is a father to six children. Together with his family, he lives in Khuroson. Safarmahmad has a corn field. For more than 13 years, he has been growing corn. Because his sons are working abroad, Safarmahmad has his daughters to help him with the harvest. Safarmahmad is a trained driver and he transports the collected corn to other regions himself.

Safarmahmad is hoping that this loan will help him collect the harvest faster, and in the future, help him to expand his field. Safarmahmad and his neighbors are planning to use the profits from the sale of the harvest to build local roads and to provide electricity to their region. In Tajikistan, many areas suffer in the winter from the lack of electricity. The local residents are hoping that when the winter comes, the work will be completed and they will have electric power.
