Natalya's story

Natalya is from Kamenki. She grows tomatoes, cucumbers and radishes in greenhouses. She has four large greenhouses, as well as greenhouses for seedlings. She has been in this line of work for about 16 years. Last year, Natalya fell into debt because of a serious illness and the sudden death of her father - she had to spend heavily on medical care and could hardly pay it back.

Natalya needs an additional 15,000 hryvnas install a heating system in her greenhouses. In order to conduct the heat, she needs to buy a metal pipe for 10,000 hryvnas, plastic pipe for 2,000 hryvnas and she needs an additional 3,000 hryvnas for taps, electrical components and fixings. At the moment, she wants to heat two of her greenhouses, but next year she hopes to heat the other two.
