Alina's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to purchase fertilizers and seeds to have a prosperous harvest and create a better living so that her family can reunite in the homeland.

Alina's story

Meet Alina again.

She lives alone in Haykashen village because her husband and son are currently working in Russia. For 15 years, Alina's main activity has been farming. She cultivates greens, eggplants, and cucumbers. Later she sells the agricultural products at local markets, and this is the main income source for her.

With the previous loan provided through the generous support of Kiva lenders, Alina had a chance to increase the productivity of her farm. However, farming needs constant care and enhancements. Thus, Alina applied for this loan wishing to purchase fertilizers and seeds. She is sure that this will help her have a prosperous harvest. With an increased income from sales, Alina hopes to create better living conditions so that her husband and son can get back to their homeland.
