Irina grows vegetables on her land plot in the village of Vodyanoe. She has been in this business for 10 years. Irina is divorced and bringing up a daughter on her own. She grows tomatoes, radishes and cucumbers.

Irina hopes to invest 24,000 UAH to prepare for a new farming season, specifically to buy seeds, greenhouse film charcoal and fertilizers. This year Irina decided to insulate her greenhouses with double-layer film and buy high-quality seeds, which will speed up the ripening of the vegetables and improve the quality of her produce. In addition, this year Irina bought a land plot of 600 m (about 0.15 acres), where she plans to build additional greenhouses in the near future.

Ирина занимается выращиванием овощей на своем участке в селе Водяное. Этим бизнесом она занимается уже 10 лет. Ирина – разведена, сама воспитывает дочку. Из овощей она выращивает помидоры, редис и огурцы.
Ирина надеется вложить сумму в 24 000 гривен в подготовку к новому фермерскому сезону, а именно купить семена, пленку, уголь и удобрения. В этом году Ирина решила сделать теплицы под две пленки и купить хорошие качественные семена, что значительно ускорит процесс созревания овощей и улучшит качество получаемой продукции. Еще Ирина в этом году купила участок в 6 соток, на котором она планирует строить дополнительные теплицы в ближайшем будущем.
