Nicolai's story

Nicolai is a 58-year-old man from the village of Baraboi, Donduseni region of Moldova. He is married and has a large and united family.

Nicolai is passionate about village life and owns a small farming business. He owns an apple orchard of 2 hectares. In October the autumn work will start. Nicolai will have additional expenses for paying workers to harvest the fruit.

Additional, he will need crates for packing and storing apples. On top of this, to increase the efficiency of the business, he needs to prepare the orchard for the cold season. He needs to prune, water the trees, protect the stems.

As the fruit must to be harvested, Nicolai does not have the financial resources for this work. So he decided to apply for a loan from Kiva sources. As a result, he will be able to do what he had planned, including preparing his orchard for next year.

Respectively, the yield of the orchard will also increase and thus he will take another step towards his dream of increasing his business.
