A loan of $2,975 helped to cover her greenhouses in double-layer film and buy high-quality seeds.

Irina's story

Irina grows vegetables on her land plot in the village of Vodyanoe. She has been in this business for 10 years. Irina is divorced and bringing up a daughter on her own. She grows tomatoes, radishes and cucumbers.

Irina hopes to invest 24,000 UAH to prepare for a new farming season, specifically to buy seeds, greenhouse film charcoal and fertilizers. This year Irina decided to insulate her greenhouses with double-layer film and buy high-quality seeds, which will speed up the ripening of the vegetables and improve the quality of her produce. In addition, this year Irina bought a land plot of 600 m (about 0.15 acres), where she plans to build additional greenhouses in the near future.
