Alexandra's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped buy seeds, coal, fertilizer and plastic film.
Alexandra runs a greenhouse farming business. Her husband had a stroke some time ago, and he has since recovered, but can no longer work in the greenhouses like he used to. Alexandra tends to her farm together with her youngest son. Her children will be moving into a new home this coming summer. She invited some of her relatives to stay with her earlier this year; they were refugees from Donetsk in eastern Ukraine, and lived with her for two months. Things have quieted down in Donetsk, and they've gone back home. Alexandra is seeking a loan of 40,000 hryvnia to buy seeds, coal, plastic film and fertilizer. She hopes to make a good amount of money this season to be able to provide for her family.
