Ion's story

Ion is a 43-year-old farmer from the village of Sadova in the Calarasi region of Moldova. He is married and has a son and two daughters. Ion's wife regularly goes to work abroad. In this way, she manages to earn an income.

Ion currently cultivates blackberries on an area of 0.55 hectares (ha) of land, of which 0.25 ha were planted this year. He also has 1.5 ha of land on which the plum orchard grows. This orchard will start to bear fruit next year, which will help him a lot. He also processes 1 ha of vines, 1 ha of corn, and 1.5 ha of sunflowers.

Ion is a hardworking man and he really likes what he does. He has decided to expand his farm's capacities by planting more blackberries. Since he does not have enough money, he is asking for a loan from Kiva, which will help him a lot. The loan will help increase production and therefore, his income.

Ion hopes that his wife will not have to go abroad to work. Families must be together, and Ion wants this very much.
