A loan of $2,450 helped build a new greenhouse.


Mariya's story

Mariya lives in Beregovo, Western Ukraine. She grows vegetables in greenhouses. Mariya has been farming in greenhouses for fifteen years. She owns the land where her greenhouses sit. Mariya grows cucumbers, tomatoes, cabbage and radishes. Maria plans to use 20,000 hryvnia to build a new greenhouse. Mariya would like to invest profits from the new greenhouse into buying a van so that she can more easily deliver her crops. Mariya hopes that this will turn into a stable business for her entire family, and that eventually she will be able to help her children get on their feet and become financially independent.
