International Microloan Fund's (IMON) mission is to promote economic development in Tajikistan and assist in increasing the quality of life in the country by providing sustainable access to finance for economically active people in Tajikistan.
Currently IMON provides many different loan products, some of which are unique and innovative tailor made to the needs of micro entrepreneurs in Tajikistan. The Fund's activity is aimed at small and medium enterprise development and the creation of new jobs in Tajikistan. The Fund achieves these goals by providing financial services.
In 2008, IMON served over 26,500 borrowers in Tajikistan, 43% of which were women.
In a study conducted in 2005, IMON found that 83.33% of the respondents witnessed an increase in their enterprise assets and thus higher sales volume. Of those surveyed, 77.09% had experienced an increase in household material goods which is indicative of an increase in quality of life for the families. More than 56% of the households save regularly while 20.83% re-invest business profits instead of adding them to savings.
