Yuliya is married with a teenage son Alexander. She is a farming entrepreneur from Kamenka where she grows early spring vegetables, i.e. tomatoes, radishes, etc. Yuliya owns two spacious arch greenhouses. She has been in the farming business for 15 years. Currently she has already invested about 40,000 Grivnyas in this business. The annual cost of seeds and polyethylene film amounts to 5,000-7,000 Grivnyas.
Yuliya is seeking a loan of 10,000 Grivnyas to finish construction of the third greenhouse and purchase quality polyethylene film for it. Yuliya is hoping to grow tomatoes in the new greenhouse. Yuliya loves what she is doing and is looking forward to the future. She is grateful for the opportunity this business has given, not only to provide for herself but also to help her family.
