Jamshed's story

The man on this photo is called Jamshed. He is from Kulyab and is 40 years old. He has a large family. Jamshed lives together with his parents, wife and children. He is married to Safargul. They are raising two sons and two daughters. Jamshed says that his family is the most valuable and sacred in life.

Jamshed and Safargul's children are young and Jamshed's parents are pensioners, and therefore Jamshed is feeding his family and works hard so they will not be in need of anything. His wife works as a cleaner at a school. Jamshed works with livestock breeding. He would like to work as a taxi driver in addition, in order to cover the family's expenses, which are increasing.

Jamshed plans to purchase an Opel Caravan and provide a taxi service. He has decided to drive passengers from Hovaling to Dushanbe and back. He hopes that you will help him gather the remaining money through a loan, so he can purchase the car.
