Nadezhda's story

Nadezhda has been involved in growing vegetables on her own plot of land in the Vodyanoye village for 14 years. Because Nadezhda's parents are from Vodyanoye, she too has been familiar with agriculture since childhood. She and her husband used to live in Energodar, both of them worked, but did not have enough money. Then, they sold their apartment and purchased a house in the Vodyanoye village. Nadezhda and her husband built greenhouses together and continue to develop their business. They have 4 heated greenhouses for tomatoes, 10 small ones for radishes and two greenhouses for seedlings. They installed another greenhouse this year and need to cover it.

Nadezhda hopes to install another greenhouse and needs 40 000 hryvnia for this purpose. Nadezhda has about a hectare of land, so she has space to grow her business. She wants to expand her business and build more greenhouses. In the meantime, they grow wheat for their animal husbandry business, but plan to build greenhouses there and expand more.
