A loan of $2,500 helped buy seeds and plastic sheeting for covering greenhouses in the growing season.


Alena's story

Alena is divorced with a grown son. She is from the village of Kardashinka Malaya. She has been farming in greenhouses for 25 years. She grows early and late cucumbers, tomatoes, and radishes on her own 25-acre plot of land. After Alena was divorced, she remained single, and had to do everything and raise her son. Alena did not give up and was eventually able to start growing in greenhouses. Alena is asking for a loan of 20,000 hryvnia to reconstruct the greenhouses. She needs to buy seeds and plastic sheeting for covering the greenhouses in the growing season.
