Iana's story

Iana is a 39 year old woman from the village of Rudi, in the district of Soroca. She is married, has two children and works in the processing of apple orchards. She began working in agriculture about 12 years ago and now together with her husband, they are working 4 hectares of their own orchards. 1.5 hectares is an old orchard made up of autumn varieties and the remaining 2.5 hectares is a young orchard growing summer varieties. The agricultural work is carried out at the family level, and when the work demands more manpower, they are hiring seasonal workers. The biggest problem faced by the family, is the lack of needed agricultural equipment and because of this they are unable to process the orchards in the correct time period. They have a T40 tractor and some agricultural equipment that is old and doesn’t meet the requirements needed. Mrs. Iana’s dream is to procure the correct agricultural equipment (plow, cultivator and rake). She will personally contribute $1,500 but requires a loan of $ 3,000 for her dream to come true. With the new equipment she will be able to perform timely care of the orchards which will allow her to bring in a rich harvest. Which will not only allow for the business to develop even more in the future but can also result in the creation of new jobs as the business grows.
