Alexandru's story

Alexandru is a 58-year-old farmer who lives in Petruseni village in the Riscani region of Moldova. He is divorced and lives alone in his own house. Alexandru earns a living by raising animals such as rabbits and poultry but his main occupation is the production of honey bees. He is always on the move and never gives in to fatigue. The aim of the winter work of a beekeeper is keeping his hives quiet until spring so they can withstand the cold and get sufficient food. In winter he cannot touch the bees, so good planning and organization is needed. Bees are like children in need of love and care.

Alexander is asking for Kiva loan to buy a trailer to transport his honey bees and buy five cows. This will allow him to continue to develop his farm and enjoy a stable source of income.
