Irina has been engaged in growing vegetables on her plot of land in the village of Novovodyanoye for 25 years. She is married and has two grown children. Income from the garden is about 90,000 hryvnia. Irina grows tomatoes, cucumbers, radishes, cabbage, and peppers.

Irina plans to use the funds received from Kiva, in the amount of 24,000 hryvnia, to buy seeds, plastic sheeting, and fertilizers, and to make repairs on her greenhouses that were stricken by snowfall. This year, her daughter is getting married and the family will spend on the wedding, so now they do not have the funds for the farm. Over time, Irina hopes to put up two more greenhouses, as she still has a lot of available land.

Ирина занимается выращиванием овощей на своем участке в селе Ново-Водяное уже 25 лет. Она – замужем, у нее двое взрослых детей. Доход с огорода составляет около 90 000 гривен. Ирина выращивает помидоры, огурцы, редис, капусту и перец.
Ирина планирует использовать средства, полученные от КИВА, в размере 24 000 гривен для того, чтобы закупить семена, полиэтиленовую пленку, удобрения и сделать ремонт теплицы, которая пострадала от снегопада. В этом году дочь вышла замуж, семья потратилась на свадьбу, поэтому теперь им не хватает собственных средств на хозяйство. Со временем Ирина надеется поставить еще две теплицы, так как у нее еще есть много свободной земли.
