Alla is a farmer from Gladkovka. She is married with a young son – Konstantin. Alla grows early spring radish, tomatoes and cucumbers in greenhouses for sale in the markets of Kherson and the neighboring regions. She has been in this business for 7 years and has already invested about 100,000 Grivnyas in it. Her net profit amounts to 3,000 Grivnyas a month.
Alla is seeking a loan of 10,000 Grivnyas to purchase seeds, wood, plastic film and fertilizers for her greenhouses. She is planning to protect her plants with a new layer of polyethylene film, stabilize the temperatures inside the greenhouses with more wood for the heating units, and use good quality fertilizers to ensure timely and ripe harvests. These investments will bring Alla a stable income.
