Katalin's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped a woman owned farm and tree nursery to become reality in the midst of the COVID 19 crisis.

Katalin's story

I am a long time farmer/gardener/artist/musician who has a dream to create a biodynamic and organic permaculture farm. I just sold my small house to buy a land large enough to start a tree nursery/orchard and honeybee farm on it. I have a son who just turned 14 and have been in the United States since 2001. I arrived here with just two suitcases from Eastern Europe. Since then life has not been easy, especially when it comes to money, and being a single mom for many years not long after my son was born. I have had jobs as farmer, gardener, landscaper, house painter, carpenter, artist assistant, personal helper, jewelry maker, clown, dog walker, baby sitter, au pair, decoupage artist, muralist, full time artist, and more. I am on Kiva to because I need help restarting our lives with a farm and generating an income with what I love doing.
