Ecaterina's story

Ecaterina is a 39-year-old farmer from the village of Batir in the Cimislia region of Moldova. She is married and has two sons, ages seven and nine years, who make her happy every day. She and her family live in their own house.

Ecaterina is a hardworking woman whose husband supports her efforts. She and her husband process 63 ha, or hectares, of agricultural land. Six ha belong to the family while the rest are being leased from other villagers.

Of the many hectares of land, three hectares are devoted to vineyards. Near the house, Ecaterina also has built two greenhouses where she grows vegetables for family members, but also for selling. Their family are beekeepers as well.

Now, Ecaterina is applying for a loan from Kiva to procure fertilizer for her wheat fields. With the loan her family will be able to increase grain productivity, which will allow them to increase their income and to continue to develop their farm.
