Svetlana's story

Svetlana has been a farmer since 2001. She started her business with animal husbandry. She had two cows in her livestock. Additionally a year ago she began to cultivate strawberries, grapes and cherries on the 45 acres of land. Her two grown children help her in the business. Her older son is a designer and her younger son is a banker.

To facilitate her work Svetlana decided to buy a walk-behind tractor for plowing of the land; brushcutters to prepare hay for the cows and for mowing of weeds; film for greenhouses and water pump for irrigation of the land where strawberries and grapes are planted.

In her business plans Svetlana wants to buy a 500 square meter greenhouse for strawberries and grapes as well as a mini tractor with attachments. In her private life she wants to complete the building of her house and to buy a car.
