Ирина – вдова, она живет в селе Водяное. Еще 30 лет назад решила заниматься сельским хозяйством на своем земельном участке. Стала выращивать овощи, а именно помидоры, огурцы и редис. Ирина всю жизнь проработала фельдшером на скорой помощи, знает все село. Сейчас она на пенсии, муж умер. Пенсия у Ирины маленькая, прожить на нее трудно, поэтому она занимается хозяйством вместе с сыном. На сегодняшний день имеет доход с огорода в 63 000 гривен.
Ирина обратилась к КИВА за финансовой помощью в 10 000 гривен для того, чтобы закупить удобрения, пленку, а также приобрести брус, проволоку и рейку для новой теплицы. В прошлом году купили дом в селе Днепровка и стали строить там теплицу, но немного не хватило средств, чтобы закончить. В следующем году Ирина надеется построить еще одну теплицу.
