A loan of $600 helped purchase of wheat seeds.

Sobirjon's story

Sobirjon A. is a resident of the Vakh region. He is 40 years old, married and has 5 children. Sobirjon has a high school degree and has been growing wheat for more then 5 years for a living. As the market price for flour is very high and bread is the main food staple in Sobirjon's household, he has been growing his own wheat. In years when he has a good harvest Sobirjon is also able to sell some of the grain to his neighbors, which supplements the family's income. Sobirjon wants to ensure a good harvest and would like to purchase good quality seeds for the next year. He is planning to pay back the loan in the next 10 months.
