Vladimir is married with 5 sons. He and his wife have a family business - growing early spring vegetables (tomatoes, cucumbers, etc) in greenhouses. They have been in this business for 20 years. They moved to this particular location 3 years ago though. All his sons help their parents in business too. Vladimir would like to borrow 10,000 UAH to build three more greenhouses that would allow him to increase the sales in spring. Vladimir would also like to purchase some land from his neighbor to build even more greenhouses next year.
