It is important for you to meet who we helped today through this site. As I mention, all over the place, revenue from people clicking on ads and using the service of advertisers is used to help sponsor people in poverty through Kiva. Please visit or use the services of advertisers on the GetOutOfDebt.org site so we can help more people.
Sobira Bobakhonova is 44 years old. She is divorced and has two children. Sobira has been running a grocery store for the past eleven years. She sells sweets, preserved food, juices, soft drinks, and many other items in her grocery. The inventory she has for sale is of very good quality and selection. Sobira is respectful and patient with all of her customers and this attracts people and brings them back to her vending facility to buy groceries again.
Sobira is seeking to keep her business sustainable and has requested a loan of $1325 for a term of twelve months to increase the inventory she has for sale. We believe this current loan will enhance the potential of her business and help Sobira reach all of her aspirations.
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 for its famous great thinkers, philosophers, scientists and poets such 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.
The reason I give money to Kiva to help people all over the world in disadvantaged places is so we can give someone an opportunity to start a small business so they can care for their family and become self-sufficient.

My goal is to increase site traffic and revenue by a sufficient amount that I could sponsor one person a day. That would be awesome! If you want to work together to help achieve that goal, join my lending team and together we can make a profound difference.
