A loan of $3,050 helped to build one more green house for raising tomatoes.


Larisa's story

Larisa runs her farm with the help of her son and her mother. They live in a village and have a large plot of land. Over the last 10 years, they built three large greenhouses, and they have two others for seedlings. Last year they installed a heating system. Larisa reports that this was a big improvement. She says, "we work as hard as before, but our income is much bigger!" It was difficult for her to raise her son alone. They never had enough money, but now she is joyful because they now have some security and success, and with her son now grown, she has someone on whom she can rely. The loans really help Larisa. She was fearful when she took out the first one, but with time she has come to understand that without the loan she wouldn't have been able to get to where she is today. Larisa is requesting a loan of 25,000 hryvni (UAH). She wants to build an additional greenhouse to be able to grow more tomatoes. Since they still have undeveloped land where it will be possible to build two more greenhouses, Larisa looks forward to working together again in the future.
