The chapan is a traditional coat worn by men throughout the "Stans" of Central Asia…Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Afghanistan. Recently, the chapan has been given as a gift to foreigners working together with Afghanistan towards a peaceful future.

Agriculture is the backbone of Myanmar’s economy.
There are lots of farmers in Myanmar who work hard to support themselves, their families, and their villages with jobs and food.
However, many banks don’t offer capital to farmers for them to purchase enough seeds, equipment, or animals to run their farms efficiently. Due to this, farm productivity in Myanmar is one of the lowest in all of Asia.
