Ecaterina's story

Ecaterina is a 44-year-old farmer from Meleseni village, Calarasi region, Moldova. She deals with growing vegetables in greenhouses. She owns nine greenhouses with a total area of 0.30 hectares.

Ecaterina started this occupation 20 years ago, working together with her husband. But last year, her husband passed away, and she continues to develop her business, being helped by her daughter. Selling vegetables is the main financial source for Ecaterina.

She likes her occupation and has a lot of satisfied and loyal customers. Because of the strong wind, the greenhouses were deterred. To purchase film, Ecaterina requests a loan from Kiva. As a result, she will have the possibility to continue to grow vegetables and will have the possibility to earn income for supporting herself.
