Lubov's story

Lubov is a responsible, intelligent, hardworking person. For many years, she worked as a secretary at a state farm, and was loved and respected by her coworkers for her kind, sympathetic heart.

Lubov is now retired and can devote more time to her home business of growing tall tomatoes. In the past, Lubov worked in the garden with her husband, but he is now handicapped with spine problems and can only move with the aid of crutches. Lubov worries a lot about her husband and it was very difficult for her to continue with her business, but she now gets help from her son and they work together.

Thanks to previous Kiva loans, Lubov and her son built and equipped two greenhouses. There is enough space on her land for one more greenhouse. To avoid losing a year, Lubov decided to request a loan of 20,000 UAH and build the additional greenhouse.

Lubov loves her three children. The oldest are already independent, but the youngest needs support. Lubov is therefore doing all she can to help her youngest son get on his feet.
