A loan of $1,500 helped to install heating system in greenhouses.


Irina's story

Irina lives with her husband and son in the city of Kamenka. She grows early vegetables in greenhouses for sale at city markets. Irina owns a large plot of land and has been farming for three years. She has three big greenhouses and also two greenhouses for seedlings. Her farm is worth 150,000 griven now and she spends 27,000 griven yearly to purchase seeds and plastic foil. Irina is planning to use the loan from Kiva to install a heating system in her greenhouses. She needs 12,000 griven so that she can buy the necessary pumps, tubing and holders. Recently Irina used 18,000 griven to purchase a water heater and now she needs this loan to purchase the rest of the supplies and install the heating systems in her greenhouses as she has been planning to do for a long time. This year Irina has invested all of her money into this project but in the future she is hoping to use some of the profits to repair her family home.
