Olga is a farmer with many years of experience. Together with her husband, she started to grow vegetables 20 years ago. At first, they planted tomatoes, radishes and other vegetables in the open ground. Then, they started to cover the ground with plastic by building small greenhouses. Due to the changes in prices and seasons (early vegetables are more profitable to sell), they now have the need to build a large greenhouse, but do not have their own means to do so. Olga is requesting a loan in the sum of 10,000 hryvnia to install a large greenhouse for tomatoes. Olga and her husband own a lot of land, where they plan to continue developing their vegetable business. Olga lives in her own house with her youngest daughter. Two of her older daughters got married, live separately and love to visit with grandchildren.

Ольга - фермер с многолетним опытом. Вместе с мужем она начала заниматься выращиванием овощей еще 20 лет назад. Вначале высаживали помидоры, редис и др. овощи в открытый грунт. Затем начали накрывать пленкой, строя маленькие теплицы. В связи с изменениями цен и сезонности (ранние овощи продавать намного выгодней) появиласть необходимость построить большую теплицу. Своих средств для этого не хватает.

Ольга просит предоставить ей кредит в размере 10,000 гривен на установку большой теплицы для помидор. У Ольги с мужем много свой земли, где они планируют продолжать развивать свой овощной бизнес.
