Catana P. is 54 years old, and she lives in Basarabeasca district, Carabetovca village, in the Republic of Moldova. Her family has 2.64 hectares of agricultural land, plus an additional 0.5 hectares of agricultural land which belongs to her parents. She has been working this land since 2001, though she does not have technical agricultural skills; instead, much of the technical work is carried out by skilled workers from the village, even though she participates in much of the manual labor.
Next year she wants to plant many vine varieties. As a result, she is seeking a loan through MicroInvest in order to purchase vine grafts and cuttings.
