Maria's story

Maria is a 27-year-old farmer from Seliste village, Orhei region of Moldova. She is married and has a son only 4 years old who makes her happy every day. This year, Maria and her husband and a family friend planted three ha of melons and 1.5 ha of onions. Gaining experience in the field of agriculture, they decided to procure 1.5 ha of their own agricultural land. The purchased land is located in the neighbour village. Also in the same locality, she also bought a lot under construction, where she planned to build her own house. Until the beginning of the working season, Maria's husband will go to work abroad. Then when her husband returns, they will start farming.

Now, Maria wants to increase the area of agricultural land. However, not having enough money, she applied for a loan from Kiva to buy 1.5 ha of agricultural land. As a result, she will be able to expand the agricultural lands to create a sustainable source of income and food for her family.
