Andrei is married with two sons. He is a farming entrepreneur from Kamenka, which is a predominantly agricultural region of the Ukraine. Andrei runs 10 big greenhouses and a separate one for seedlings. He started this enterprise 15 years ago. He has already invested about 150,000 Grivnyas in the trade.
Andrei is requesting a loan of 15,000 Grivnyas to purchase black plastic film to be spread on the ground, to finish installation of a heating system and construct a drip irrigation unit. Polyethylene film expenses will amount to 10,000 Grivnyas. Costs related to installation of a heating system amount to 3,000 Grivnyas. Installation of an irrigation unit costs about 2,000 Grivnyas. Greenhouse business has a huge potential in this region of Ukraine, which is why Andrei pins great hopes on further development of his venture.
