Vitalyi is married with two teenage children. He lives in Vodyanoye, Ukraine and grows early spring vegetables for sale in the local markets in his region. Vitalyi owns six arch greenhouses where he does tomato and radish farming. He has been in the business for eight years. Vitalyi currently has 70,000 Grivnyas invested in his business. Annually he spends about 30,000 Grivnyas on seeds and polyethylene protective film.

He is requesting a 10,000 Grivnya loan to buy five rolls of polyethylene film to repair the greenhouses damaged during heavy winter snowfalls and ice. The loan will give him the chance to sow seedlings in his greenhouses on time. One of Vitalyi’s short-term plans is to finish construction of the seventh greenhouse on his property. Profits generated last year enabled Vitalyi to buy a vehicle which helped in many aspects of his business.
