This chapter charts the varying roles played by Afghans as merchants, traders, credit providers, and shopkeepers in Tajikistan. Afghans who belong to very different social categories from one another trade, live, and work in the country, forge ties to one another in relation to their shared identification as “Afghans” and bring to Tajikistan a diverse range of commodities and products. These networks, the chapter shows, revolve around the ties that people of Afghan background have forged with one another within Tajikistan. By exploring these networks, the chapter locates Afghans in Tajikistan and Central Asia as part of an expansive and little explored trading diaspora or network.
