Marina's story

Marina has been engaged in the cultivation of early vegetables in greenhouses for 13 years. In the beginning, she learned the technologies, then began to try, and it came to be - it was developed. Today, Marina has a good harvest and good profits.

Previously, Marina had a small plot, and now her business has expanded. Marina recently acquired land — and needs to fence it in. Marina is asking for a loan to build a fence around the new site, as well as to repair the existing greenhouses - and needs to purchase film and irrigation hoses.

Her eldest daughter is studying and living in the town of Dnepropetrovsk (200 miles from her parents), and her son lives with his parents and goes to school.
