A loan of $3,000 helped to buy seeds, fertilizers and coal, and to finish constructing a greenhouse heating system.

Alexandra's story

Alexandra, her husband, and their three grown sons live in Kamenka. Together, they have been cultivating vegetables on their plot of land for the past 12 years. The business brings a good income, and the family has been able to expand it over time, for example by gradually installing a heating system in the greenhouse for seedlings. Last year, Alexandra's husband suffered a stroke. Presently, he is not quite able to work in the greenhouses, and so Alexandra's sons are her main source of help.

Alexandra needs 24,000 hryvnia in order to purchase seeds, fertilizers and coal, and also to complete the greenhouse heating system. In time, the family would like to have a quality heating system in the seedling greenhouse, in order to be able to grow the seedlings themselves instead of buying them.
