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

A loan helped to buy raspberry seedlings for planting.

Evdochia's story

Evdochia is a 63-year-old a pensioner who lives with her husband, who is also a pensioner. Because their pensions are miserable, they need to look for new sources of income for their family needs. Evdochia and her husband decided to plant raspberries on the land that they inherited from their parents. To do this on half of the land, she needs 3,500 seedlings. The variety she has chosen produces fruits from the first year of planting, has a high resistance to frost and is quite resistant to diseases. Her main problem is that she does not have all the necessary capital to buy these raspberry seedlings.

Finding out about Kiva, Evdochia decided to ask for help. Planting the new variety of raspberry on her land will allow her to have a stable income every year so she can buy wood and coal for heating the house in winter.
