Vasile's story

Vasile is a 57-year-old farmer from Taraclia village, Causeni region of Moldova. He is married and has children who are already married and living abroad. He is a skilled and hard-working farmer.

He started his business from the purchase of 6 hectares of land. He processed the land and planted different fruit each year. For about five years, he has planted walnut orchards on these 6 hectares. This year they gave the first fruit. He also has 3 hectares of land on which he cultivates corn and vines. Vasile does the agricultural work using his own agricultural equipment. At certain seasons, he hires people from the village to carry out agricultural tasks.

Now, Vasile needs a loan from Kiva to pay the workers' salaries. With the benefit of the loan, Vasile will have the opportunity to carry out the agricultural work on time and not to lose fruit.
