A canteen in Ungheni is being modernized with the support of the EU and UNDP Moldova

April 2, 2024

Arcadie Babin owns a business in the field of public catering in the municipality of Ungheni. The canteen has a diverse environment, with dishes from both traditional and other cultures.

In 2022, the canteen managed by Arcadie Babin benefited from assistance worth 24,000 euros.

The investment was directed towards the purchase of modern equipment for refitting the canteen. Thus, state-of-the-art rollers and electric hobs were purchased, which offer more comfort and allow several dishes to be prepared at the same time.

"The business increased a lot, thanks to the project. We have a greater flow of people and companies that we serve," says Arcadie Babin.

Thanks to this investment, Arcadie Babin hired three more people, and now 12 people work in the canteen. The support received from the "EU4Moldva: Focal Regions" programme contributed to the consolidation of the business, and in the future Arcadie Babin plans to expand his business to other sectors of the city.

Arcadie Babin is one of the 75 entrepreneurs from Cahul and Ungheni regions who benefited from assistance from the "EU4Moldova: Focal Regions" programme, financed by the European Union and implemented by UNDP and UNICEF.
