Elena's story

Elena is a 57-year-old woman and lives in Niscani village, Calarasi region, Moldova. She is a widow and is raising her three children alone.

She is employed at the dairy processing plant in the city of Calarasi. She and her children have lived in their house for a long time. Elena owns and processes 0.50 ha of land on which she grows corn and grapes. At her small farm she raises 20 poultry that are used as family food. From the salary, she has managed to invest something in the house but it is not enough. At the moment Elena wants to build a basement to store agricultural produce and vegetables during the cold season.

Now, Elena needs a Kiva loan to purchase construction materials that will help her complete the construction work. As a result, she will be able to improve her living conditions and will have the possibility to keep food for her children a longer time.
