SUCCESS STORY // Young grantee becoming entrepreneur at only 18

He just had his baccalaureate exams and awaits results. Still he is less concerned than his colleagues, as he already has his small business, three employees and a tractor providing mechanized services to farmers in Tudora.                  


We introduce you the youngest entrepreneur in Stefan Voda District. His name is Dorin Țapu, he is only 18 year old and recently became the manager of his own business - Vidorgen Lux SRL. Obviously, many could wonder whether this is possible in Moldova. Also, not too many young people would have this courage. In spite of that, Dorin proved that all this is possible.    


This young man could’ve had great luck, but he also had determination. He found out about a grant competition while navigating social media and decided to participate. The grants were awarded by the EU-UNDP project “Support to Confidence Building Measures Programme”, implemented by Business Consulting Institute.


Dorin Țapu made his business work and invested his 13,000 Euro grant in a new tractor. He has created three jobs and started providing a wide range of services to farmers in the village. He is confident that his business will soon become profitable.


He also added that it takes courage, confidence and timeliness to become an entrepreneur.
