Anatolie's story

Anatolie is a 54-year-old farmer from Valea Mare village in the Ungheni region of Moldova. He is married and has two daughters. His wife has gone to work abroad and one of his daughters is studying abroad.

Anatolie has worked abroad for a long time and managed to accumulate capital which he invested in own business. From the beginning he had a hectare of land which got from his parents, and he bought another six hectares of land. He grows grapes, potatoes and cherries, earns stable income in Moldova, and exports grapes abroad.

Anatolie is a hardworking man who wants to have a good future at home. Last year he invested money in an irrigation system that helped him greatly increase production. Now, he needs to buy seeds and supports for his grapes. For this reason he has requested a loan from Kiva. This loan will give him the chance to develop a stable and sustainable business.


This loan is special because:

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