Валентина – вдова, сама воспитала двух сыновей, которые уже взрослые и живут отдельно. Валентина много лет занимается выращиванием ранних овощей: уже на протяжении 13 лет она на 43 сотках садит рассаду в теплицах, а потом поле в 165 соток засаживает различными видами капусты и кукурузой. В хозяйство Валентина вложила 50 000 гривен. Чистая прибыль теперь составляет около 4 700 гривен в месяц.

Кредит в 15 000 гривен необходим Валентине для того, чтобы закупить семена, пленку, агроволокно и дрова для своих теплиц. Благодаря улучшению условий в теплицах и своевременному ремонту каждой из них, Валентина сможет вырастить раннюю овощную продукцию высокого качества и быстро ее реализовать, получив при этом дополнительную прибыль.
