A loan helped to buy plum trees and to cultivate land for an orchard.


Andrei's story

Andrei is a 38-year-old farmer from the village of Buda in the region of Calarasi, Moldova. He is married and has two children. His wife is not working at the moment since she is raising the children. They live at his parents’ house.

Andrei works in agriculture. He cultivates one hectare of land on which he grows cereals. Andrei also has a plum orchard that occupies 0.3 hectares of agricultural land. His first plum harvest will take place in the fall, which is when he plans to dry and sell the fruit. He has an additional 2.5 hectares of land where he plans to plant a new plum orchard. A loan from Kiva will help him to cultivate this land and to purchase additional plum trees to plant in this orchard. As a result, Andrei will be able to expand his business and ensure a good future for his children.


This loan is special because:

It enables those living in rural areas to grow their businesses at a lower interest rate.
