A loan helped to buy peanuts for planting.

Liuba's story

Liuba is 59-years-old farmer from Batir village, Cimislia region of Moldova. She is a widow and lives in her own home with her mother, who is 80 years old and is ill. She is a pensioner, but she continues to work because the pension is not sufficient for maintenance.

Three years ago their family planted an orchard of peanuts on 2 ha of land. And Liuba wants to increase the capacities of the orchard and to plant 400 more plants. She also works .76 ha alive and cultivates cereals on an area of .5 ha of land. On her farm she has 13 sheep and 95 poultry that are used for family consumption. The income she gets is enough for living expenses, but not to realize Liuba's dream.

Liuba decided to ask a loan from Kiva to buy peanuts for planting. This fact will help to increase the area of the orchard, and in the future will ensure the financial stability of her family, which will make them happy.
