Petru Nircă from Cocieri village is the administrator of the biggest farm from Dubăsari. After the Tiraspol-Camenca road opened he owned thousands of hectares of lands. Due to Tiraspol's restrictions, the institutions has grave financial problems.
"We have a debt of 300 thousand lei toward economic agents, toward founders and a big debt we couldn't pay off from the equipment acquired back in 2006, 4-5 million lei from our income was lost" Petru Nircă said.
Despite having a lot of work to do, the farmers claims that more jobs will be open.
"We are both happy and sad. The happiness is the village and responsible people who solved the issue from the start, but what can we do to avoid hitting a dead end? We must think how to start using that thousand of hectare again" Petru Nircă explained.
For three years the number of our employees lessen by a third. Those who remained said that they went through a real challenge.
"We are emotional and have big hopes that we will manage, because it is very hard. Others will be employed and we hope the salaries will raise" employee Sergiu Bondarenco said.
"We took a credit and now to give it back, both me and my wife are working, yet we cannot pay it off, if the salary here would have been good, everyone would come to work" Alexandru Sandu said.
