Nicolae's story

Nicolae is a 36-year-old farmer from Salcuta village, Cimislia region of Moldova. He is married and has three children that make his life very beautiful. He lives with his family in his own house.

He deals with the cultivation of agricultural land. This activity was started 10 years ago, when his father died and he inherited the agricultural land. Now he cultivates 50 ha of land. The agricultural land is processed with his own equipment. Some of the hectares are their own, and some are lease from individuals in the village. Nicolae cultivates cereals and sunflowers. Agricultural production is sold at the market.

He is currently applying for a Kiva loan to buy seeds and diesel, so that the agricultural season can begin. Benefiting from the loan, he will be able to obtain the desired harvest and income to create a better life for the entire family.
