Oleg is married with two sons. He is a farming entrepreneur from Gladkovka, in south-eastern Ukraine. He owns a greenhouse and grows vegetables for sale in his region. Oleg launched this enterprise 5 years ago. Ever since his business has grown and flourished much. Presently, Oleg has 50,000 Grivnyas invested in this venture.
Oleg is requesting a 9,000 Grivnya loan to repair his greenhouse and purchase a supply of firewood (acacia and pine wood) to heat his greenhouse. He hopes to make his greenhouse more energy-efficient and is focused on sustainable agriculture. These practices would help him reduce costs and gain higher profit as a result.
