Shamsidin's story

This 39-year-old farmer from the Khuroson region is called Shamsidin. Over the course of nine years, he has been working in the garden, planting vegetables and crops on his own plot of land. His wife helps him. But the children are still small. His elder son and daughter, who are 8 and 10 years old, are students, and the younger son and daugher are 5 and 3.

Shamsidin is now prepareing for re-seeding. He already started to collect the remaining crop and wants to work the land and plant wheat. To realize his plans, Shamsidin applied for a loan to buy mineral fertilizers, wheat grains and fuel, and also to pay a tractor driver for tilling the land.

Shamsidin hopes and believes that in the spring he will have a rich harvest of wheat and will receive a good profit from his work.
