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

A loan helped for the procurement of machinery and wood for making bee hives.

Nicolae's story

Nicolae thanks Kiva lenders for the previous loan that helped him to purchase special equipment for manufacturing wire mesh. Due to this, he was able to satisfy demands from all his clients and to develop his sustainable business.

Nicolae is a hard worker. He really likes what he does. In the autumn months Nicolae also deals with the provision of wood cutting and splitting services for fire. Because in the winter months the orders for the wire mesh are less, the client decided to buy equipment and wood for making bee hives. He plans to make 95 hives by spring. This will bring him additional income.

Now, Nicolae needs a Kiva loan to buy the equipment and wood. Using this loan he will diversify the business and increase his family's income.
