Alexandra's story

Alexandra works with green house farming. Since her previous loan, her children bought a house nearby and build two greenhouses there. This contributed to increasing the income. Alexandra would like optimize her business processes. Currently she grows seedlings in one of the largest greenhouses. Doing this, she loses time for sowing. Alexandra would like to build a separate greenhouse for seedlings. This will help reduce the sowing time, and will mean receiving the harvest earlier and sell them for a better price.

Alexandra requests a loan in the amount of 30,000 hryvnia to build greenhouses for seedlings, and also to purchase seeds, plastic film and fertilizer. The loan will help her increase the income and thus improve the welfare of the family.

Last year, Alexandra's husband suffered a stroke. He could almost not walk, but now he is improving. However he cannot work in the greenhouse. As it is hard for Alexandra to manage the business without her husband's help, her children help her. Together they hope for his speedy recovery.
