Radu's story

Radu, 38-year old man, married, who stared his own business working with livestock and dairy production. It all began when a calf was purchased for the family and the over time a business was born. At the moment Radu has two dairy cows, one calf and nine pigs. The milk from the cows is sold, giving the family a stable monthly income and the pigs are raised for one year and then sold at the market. To feed and ensure a good diet for his animals and to also have a second income, he cultivates four and a half hecatres of land, with one and a half hectares being alfalfa, two hectares being soybeans and one hectare of pumpkins. All of the land is processed with his own tractor and he also owns a milking machine to help him with his work. Radu has the opportunity to expand his business and would like to purchase three more cows and another hectare of agricultural land. This loan will enable him to increase his milk production, which will bring in more revenue so that he can support his family and continue to develop his business.
