A loan helped to build a greenhouse.

Ion's story

Ion is a 48-year-old man from Balauresti village in the Nisporeni region of Moldova. He has been active in the field of construction for a long time. He is married and has two sons who are students. His wife works as a seamstress in a sewing company in the city of Nisporeni. His wife's salary is not high. For this reason, Ion decided to grow vegetables in a greenhouse to earn an additional income. He wants to grow tomatoes, cucumbers, and green onions.

Now, Ion needs a Kiva loan to build a greenhouse for vegetables. In winter, due to the cold, the construction work is slower. However, vegetables grown in the greenhouse are more expensive, so he will be able to support his family and give them a better life.
