Vladimir is married with two daughters. He is a farmer from Kamenka. Vladimir grows early spring vegetables in his greenhouses. Vladimir owns three spacious greenhouses and another one for seedlings. Vladimir has been growing vegetables in these greenhouses for 8 years. He has already invested about 100,000 Grivnyas in this enterprise.
Vladimir is seeking a loan of 15,000 Grivnyas to purchase plastic film, seeds and fertilizers for his greenhouses. He is planning to invest 5,000 Grivnyas in fertilizers, 4,600 in polyethylene film, 1,600 Grivnyas in installation of a heating unit, 1,700 Grivnyas in installation of a drip irrigation unit, and 2,000 Grivnyas in sand and organic matter. Some of Vladimir’s plans are to re-construct one of his greenhouses that needs to be improved and expanded and to install heating units in all three greenhouses (so far he has one boiler for all of his greenhouses).
