A loan of $1,775 helps to construct an animal stable.


Andrei's story

Andrei is a 38-year-old farmer from Gura Galbenei village, Cimislia region, Moldova. He is married and has an extended family. He and his family live in his parents' house. They have three young children who make him happy.

Andrei is engaged in animal husbandry and milk production, which is his family business. In addition, he has 6 ha of agricultural land on which he grows corn. He also has three pigs, four cows, one horse and seventy chickens.

In order to have an additional source of income, Andrei has been hired as an animal caretaker on a farm in the neighboring village. He works shifts, and his family members take care of the farm animals during this time.

Now, Andrei is requesting a loan from Kiva lenders for the construction of an animal stable. The loan will improve the raising conditions for his animals, and as a result, he will be able to increase the number of animals and ensure his family's source of food and income.


This loan is special because:

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