A loan of $1,325 helped to purchase plastic for greenhouses and a drip irrigation system.


Elena's story

Elena is a woman-farmer. She has been involved in growing cucumbers and tomatoes since 2003. Her husband and 25 year-old son, who is also involved in a farming business, help her with the business. The development of the business started with a greenhouse, where they grew baby cucumbers. Elena and her husband decided to purchase plastic for covering the greenhouse for protecting cucumbers and tomatoes from cold and wind, and a drip line for watering cucumbers and tomatoes in the summer period. Her future plans are to grow the greenhouses, purchase a mini-tractor for plowing and treat the land. Her personal plans are to complete her house construction and purchase a car. Elena needs your help for financing the plastic and drip irrigation.
