Tatiana's story

Tatiana is a 40-year-old farmer from Pirlita village, Ungheni region of Moldova. She is married and has two sons that are pupils. Besides agriculture, she works as a saleswoman for a local grocery. Tatiana started to farm 10 years ago. She raises two horses, two pigs, six cows, and 120 poultry and 50 rabbits. She processes 1.5 hectares of land on which she cultivated wheat, corn and sunflower. Some of the cereals Tatiana uses for animal feed and some of them she manages to sell. Tatiana’s husband helps her manage the farm, but it is hard to process 1.5 hectares of land manually. So, she decided to buy a tractor. To realize her idea, Tatiana requests a loan from Kiva. As a result she will be able to process lands more efficiently and will have the opportunity to spend more time with her family.
