Ol'ga's story

Olga is a woman farmer. She has been involved in growing grapes, strawberries, raspberries and cereal crops since 1995. Two of her children help her with the business. The oldest son is 37 years old, and the youngest is 20 years old, and both of them work at an auto service shop. Olga started her farming business with 10 sotkas of family land share. Today, her farm consists of five hectares of land. She decided to purchase plastic for a mini greenhouse in order to increase the strawberry harvest. She also needs to purchase a mower to combat weeds. Olga's business plans are to expand the sowing of strawberries to six hectares and install a greenhouse on 400 square meters. Her personal plans are to purchase a new car to transport her harvest to markets.
