Evdochia's story

Evdochia is a 53-year-old farmer from Alexeevca village, Ungheni region, Moldova. She is married and has two daughters and a son, who is a student. A daughter is married and has a son. Her husband Fiodor is a priest in the village.

Evdochia is employed as a social worker in a local village. An additional occupation of hers is dealing with agriculture. She processes 1.5 hectares of land, where she grows corn and sunflowers. At her small farm she raises pigs, poultry and sheep. Evdochia uses most of the obtained product for family consumption, and she manages to sell cheese and meat. It is good additional income for the family. Now it is the season of harvesting, and Evdochia needs a loan from Kiva to harvest corn and sunflower. As a result Evdochia will be able to develop her farm and will have the possibility to pay for her son's studies.
