Abdujalil's story

Abdujalil is 60 years old. He lives with his wife and a son. For more than 6 years, he has been involved in agricultural activities. He hires workers to work the land and gets help from his family with handling the money produced from the sales.

Lately, Abdujalil has expanded into raising livestock, which he also sells. He buys young cattle and cows, and when they are grown and heavy, he sells them. This is the first time that Abdujalil has requested a loan from IMON International. He has good references from his neighbors who consider him a responsible person. He requests this amount to buy seeds and fertilizer to grow wheat and onions on his land.

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 it’s 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.
