Vera's story

Vera is a 39-year-old farmer from Gherman village, Ungheni region, Moldova. She is married and has 3 children of 22, 18 and 5 years old. Her husband Serghei works seasonally as a constructor in the Czech Republic. But in his free time, he helps Vera to manage the farm. They worked together in construction for 15 years and, with earned money, Vera decided to start a business.

Today she deals with raising sheep, owns a sheepfold with 180 sheep. Vera sells cheese and lambs at the open-air market in Sculeni village and it is a very good addition for family’s budget.

The cold weather is coming and the sheepfold needs to be repaired. For this reason she requests a loan from Kiva to repair the sheepfold. As a result she will be able to create better conditions for raising sheep and will have the possibility to earn stable incomes, being together with her children.
