A loan of $2,975 helped to build three new greenhouses at her plot of land.


Irina's story

Irina used her previous loan from Kiva to build an additional greenhouse. Having built it, the family managed to increase the income from the garden after a great season, to 130,000 hryvnia for the full season. Moreover, they were also able to landscape the yard, making a summer pavilion. They purchased a vehicle for the business, and her husband purchased valuable and expensive power tools for his work: A drill and a cement mixer.

This time, Irina hopes to invest the amount received from Kiva, in the amount of 24,000 hryvnia, in building three new greenhouses at her plot of land, making them heated. As a result of this, the income may increase up to double. In the picture, Irina stands next to her husband, who actively helps her manage the business.
