Irina's story

Irina is a widow who lives in Vodyanovo village. She has been farming on her home plot for 30 years, primarily growing vegetables such as tomatoes, cucumbers and radishes. She in now retired but has worked as a nurse for emergency room all her life. The entire village knows her well. Irina's husband passed away and her own pension is small so to make a living she farms with her son. Currently her profits from farming are 63 000 grivn.

Irina has turned to Kiva for a loan of 10000 grivn to purchase fertilizer as well as supplies for another greenhouse. Last year she and her son bought another house in Dneprovka village and were buildings greenhouse there but ran out of money. They are hoping to complete the greenhouse this year. Next year Irina is planning to build another one.
