A loan of $2,475 helped to install heating in the greenhouse.


Olga's story

Olga has used Kiva's loan services several times. Thanks to the previous loan Olga was able to buy used arches for the greenhouse and complete the building of two large greenhouses as well as significantly increase revenue from the garden and buy a tractor for cultivation of land. Moreover the family could afford to buy an inexpensive vehicle of local make. This time Olga needs a loan in the amount of 20,000 hryvnia to install heating in the greenhouse: to buy a boiler for 10,000 hryvnia and hoses for installation costing 10,000 hryvnia. This will give her the opportunity to sell early vegetables at a higher price. At this time one of the major current issues for Olga is the long distance from the road and the market which makes it difficult to export products. Sometimes she has to ask some of the neighbors to transport the produce. Over time Olga hopes to purchase a vehicle for business to solve this urgent problem.
