Obloior's story

Obloior is married and the father of two children. He has a large and friendly family including: his wife, children, mother and brother. For 5 years, he has been engaged in a farming business. The love for his children is the motivator that keeps him working hard for their future. He works fast together with the help of his brother to achieve quality produce.

The high price of fertilizer has caused his production to slow down; he wishes to do better, have more production and increase the number of hectares with crops. To do that, Obloior needs capital, which he is requesting through a loan and hopes that you can help him. This way he can look forward to a profitable production to increase his income and pay for his children’s education.

More about Tajikistan and IMON International

Tajikistan is perhaps best known for its rich history, which includes a key post along the Silk Road; the end of Alexander the Great's rule; and with its famous great thinkers, philosophers, scientists and poets as: Rudaki, Ibn Sina (Avicenna), Firdousi, Omar Haiyam, Jomi, Mavlavi Rumi and many others. The country is home to communities that still speak the ancient Sogdian language, epic mountain passes, and a civilization that dates back to the 4th millennium BC. And, even today, it is a complex mixture of the Islamic faith, Soviet culture, New West culture and Central Asian traditions.

But, Tajikistan is also the poorest of the former Soviet republics. The civil war, which ignited soon after its independence from the U.S.S.R., further damaged the already weak economy. In addition, 93% of the country is mountainous and only 7% of the land is arable. These conditions have resulted in high levels of unemployment and have forced hundreds of thousands to seek work in other countries, mainly Russia. While the people of Tajikistan are working to improve its agricultural production and manufacturing sector, nearly two-thirds of the population still live in abject poverty.
