A loan of $2,125 helped install heating systems in her greenhouses.


Larisa's story

Larisa has been growing vegetables for twenty years. She is divorced and lives with her mother and son. Her son is an adult who works in a nearby town and also helps his mother with the greenhouses. Larisa grows tomatoes, radishes and cucumbers. In order to reap an early crop, as well as to preserve the harvest in the cold of winter, the greenhouses must be heated. Larisa has already acquired a boiler for heating, but now she needs pipes, hoses and charcoal. Larisa is asking for a loan of 17,000 hryvnia to complete the heating system. Larisa is hardworking and cheerful. She has more land which, so far, is undeveloped. Larisa plans to build additional greenhouses and grow her business further.
