Florenc's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy fertilizer for the apple orchards so he will have a good harvest in autumn and will be able to provide more for his family.

Florenc's story

Florenc is a 55-year-old farmer from Korca city. He is married and a father of two adults; a 28-year-old married daughter living with her family and a 26-year-old son. Florenc and his wife have done agricultural activity during their entire life to provide for their family.

Twenty years ago, Florenc planted for the first time his 50 apple trees and 15 years later he managed to plant 50 more. This is the first year when all his apple trees will bear fruits and he is very happy about it. Florenc is asking, for the first time in his life, for a loan and he thought he would have Kiva lenders' understanding in this matter. He doesn't want to use pesticides on his orchards but in these conditions, it is a must to use at least fertilizer for his apple orchards.

"Apples are subject to lots of pests and diseases, but I have discovered some techniques to grow high-quality fruit you won't be afraid to eat!"-said Florenc proudly for his apple orchards.

He really hopes for your support to cultivate healthy fruits.
