A loan of $1,875 helped buy seed and fertilizer.

Vera's story

Vera lives in Kamenka in her own home. She and her husband have more than ten years of experience growing vegetables in greenhouses. She grows tomatoes, radishes and cucumbers.

Last year, her husband had a stroke. He was hospitalized and treated in the regional health center. It was very difficult for Vera to take care of the farm and her husband. Now her husband is better. He can now walk by himself, but cannot work.

This year, Vera spent money both to treat her husband and to heat the greenhouses. Now she is asking for a loan to buy seed and fertilizer.

Vera plans to expand their businesses. She has more land where she can build more greenhouses.
