Svetlana lives with her husband, son, daughter-in-law and three grandchildren (ages 6, 4 and 2 years old).
Together with her family Svetlana has been engaged in farming. They run a farm which includes two cows and a calf. Near the house where the family lives, Svetlana also cultivates corn, potatoes, tomatoes and greens.
They sell the gathered harvest in nearby open markets to earn income vital for the family.
Svetlana asks for this loan to expand the farm. The loan of USD $2,500 will be used for purchasing three oxen, potato seeds and fertilizer. This will enable them to increase their agricultural income. They are very grateful to Kiva lenders for support and trust.
