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

A loan helped to clear orchard space and plant new apple seedlings.

Lilia's story

Lilia is 42 years old, married and works in the agricultural sector. Lilia is the owner of a 4.3-hectare apple orchard. The orchard is old and needs to be renovated. She wants to clear 1.3 hectares this fall and plant 900 apple seedlings. To accomplish this, she needs financial resources and this is why she requested this loan. In the future, Lilia wants to redo the remaining 3 hectares of the orchard. Timely care of the plantation will yield a rich and quality harvest, leading to a profit for future business development and creation of new jobs.
