Natives of Shahrituz, like residents of other towns and villages in the Republic of Tajikistan, practice animal husbandry and crop farming. This business has become popular due to the advantageous climate of the Republic and the unspoiled natural environment. Taking an example from his fellow countrymen, 30-year-old Ergash is starting his own business of buying and reselling cattle. The start of his business will be the purchase of several bulls and calves. Ergash does not have enough personal savings to make this purchase. The loan amount he is requesting for his business is relatively small, as many breeds of cattle are very expensive. Ergash is very serious about his future business, as it is very important for him as the only provider in his family and he is currently unemployed. Ergash relies on your help!

Уроженцы Шахритуса как и другие жители разных сел и деревень республики Таджикистана занимаются животноводством или растениеводством. Причина, по которой эти деятельности столь популярны является благоприятный климат республики и не испорченная природа. Взяв пример со своих земляков 30-летний Эргаш начинает свою деятельность по купле и продаже крупнорогатых скотов. Началом в его бизнесе будет закуп нескольких голов бычков и телят. Чтобы совершить эту покупку Эргашу не хватает собственного сбережения. Сумму, которую он просит в кредит для такого бизнеса является малым. Потому что многие породы крупнорогатого скота очень дорогие. Эргаш к будущему бизнесу относится очень серьезно, ведь для него это очень важно, так как он единственный кормилец своей семьи и сейчас он безработный. Эргаш надеется на Вашу помощь!
