Stefan's story

Stefan is a 57-year-old farmer from Sipoteni village, Calarasi region, Moldova. He is married and has two daughters and a son. His daughters are married and the son is a student in Romania. His wife Olga helps him to manage their farm.

In 1997 Stefan started his own business with only one hectare of land. Today, he processes 8 ha of land, where he has a vineyard, and grows apple trees, melons and corn. He also owns five greenhouses, where he is growing vegetables. Stefan really loves agriculture and it is the main source of income for his family.
