Raisa's story

Raisa has been a farmer since 1980, growing melons like cantaloupe and watermelon. Her husband two children (aged 33 and 38) help her with her work. Raisa has decided to purchase plastic to enclose greenhouses as well as drip hosing for irrigation. In the future, she plans to expand the area of land where she grows her melons and to buy a tractor with a till attachment that will help her work her land. Her personal plans include building a home. She needs your help to finance the purchase of plastic sheeting and drip hosing.
