Ivan's story

Ivan is a farmer. Since 1997, he has been growing strawberries, grapes, and potatoes. He is helped on the farm by his wife (in the photo) and 21 year old son, who is learning the building trades in technical college. Ivan started in business growing potatoes and grapes.

Ivan and his son have decided to by equipment for a well and a pump since their region has a lot of problems with water for irrigation, especially during the summer dry period, when they have to water the grape vines by hand.

Among his plans for the future, Ivan wants to enlarge his plantings with new varieties of grapes and to build a greenhouse for growing strawberries. Among his personal plans, Ivan wants to buy a vehicle for transporting his harvests to market.

He needs your help to finance the equipment for the well and pump.
