Economic development

The Aga Khan Fund for Economic Development (AKFED) is making long-term investments in Tajikistan as part of an effort to catalyse foreign investment and strengthen the role of the private sector in the country while building essential infrastructure.  Its approach emphasises the development of local human resources over time, including managerial, technical, marketing and financial skills. 

These efforts complement the activities of the Mountain Societies Development Support Programme (MSDSP), an initiative of the Aga Khan Foundation.  MSDSP assists isolated mountain communities to identify and implement the small infrastructure projects necessary to improve their access to markets and social services. 

The programme also undertakes activities to support local micro, small and medium enterprises, and help establish village-owned micro-lending organisations that provide financial services to households with limited collateral.
