Nataliya's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase plastic sheeting, seeds, and fertilizer for her greenhouses.
The whole population of the village of Vodyanoye is traditionally involved in growing vegetables. Nataliya also owns her own farm, which consists of greenhouses in which she grows tomatoes and cucumbers. Nataliya has always worked hard, ever since she was a child. She learned the business from her parents, and both her farm and her house are now very organized. The whole family works all day. This year, Nataliya's second harvest suffered from the frost, so part of the crops was lost. Her son also left home to study at a naval college with high tuition fees. For these reasons, Nataliya has decided to apply for a loan of 30,000 hryvnia. She will use the money to buy seeds, plastic sheeting and fertilizers for the new season. She is very thankful for the help she is receiving, saying "Thank you for all your help. Without it, we would have a much harder time". She hopes to increase her income and wants to continue to pay for her son's education.
