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

A loan helped to procure trellis and wire for his blackberry field.

Ion's story

Ion thanks Kiva lenders for his previous loan that helped him to purchase agricultural land to expand his farm's capacity. Due to this, he was able to increase production and therefore, his income.

Ion continues to work in agriculture. He currently cultivates blackberries on an area of 1.50 ha of land. He also owns 1.2 ha of plum orchards and processes 1 ha of vines and 0.60 ha of corn. In order to be able to carry out this activity, Ion periodically goes abroad with his wife to obtain a better income. He invests this income in the development of the business and for the maintenance of his children.

Now, Ion is requesting another Kiva loan to procure trellis and wire for his blackberry field. As a result, he will be able to develop his business and organize the fields to obtain better fruit. He will then have the opportunity to increase his income without going abroad.
