Valentina's story

Valentina is a widow; she brought up her two sons, who are now adults and live separately. Valentina has grown early-ripening vegetables for many years; for the past 13 years she has planted 43 acres of seedlings in a greenhouse and then plants different types of cabbage and corn in a field of 165 acres. Valentina has invested 50,000 hryvnia in her property. Her net income is now around 4,700 hryvnia a month. Valentina needs a loan of 15,000 hryvnia to purchase seeds, film, agricultural fiber, and firewood for her greenhouse. With improved conditions in the greenhouse and timely repair, Valentina will be able to grow high quality early-ripening vegetables and do so quickly, as a result, achieving a higher income.
