Valeryi is married with a grown son, Oleg. Valeryi is a farmer from the small town of Vodyanoye. He owns 6 greenhouses and 3 separate ones for seedlings. In addition, he also has a propagating frame for seedlings. Valeryi has invested about 200,000 UAH in his venture. He has been in this business for 22 years.
Valeryi is seeking a loan of 15,000 UAH to construct a new greenhouse to expand his farming business. He is planning to use the loan as follows: 4,000 UAH to purchase polyethylene film; 1,000 UAH for metal wires; 1,500 UAH for cucumber seeds; 2,000 UAH for fertilizers; 6,500 UAH for engineering and building expenses. Thorough management of funds received will ensure greenhouse construction that will be neither expensive nor time-consuming.
