A loan helped to build a new greenhouse for growing tomatoes.


Svetlana's story

Svetlana is from Velikaya Znamenka. She grows early tomatoes on her plot of land for eight years now. Her son Evgeny is actively helping her in this business by working on the field. Svetlana has two big greenhouses. She has invested 40,000 hrivna in her business. She spends around 17,000 hrivna a year on seeds and plastic covers. Svetlana plans to invest the 13,000 hrivna loan to build a new greenhouse to grow tomatoes. An additional spacy greenhouse will let her grow better quality tomatoes in larger quantities. In her short term goals Svetlana also wants to install heating equipment in her greenhouses which is becoming increasingly important in the run-up to cold winter. Thanks to the successful farming business Svetlana was able to buy a car this year to transport the tomatoes. Next year it should help her to sell the products.
