Vladimir is married with an 11 year old son named Igor. Vladimir lives in Kamenka, a predominantly agricultural region of Ukraine. He runs a greenhouse business and owns two lots of land and five big-arch greenhouses. Vladimir launched his business ten years ago. He has already invested about 80,000 Grivnyas in his business. His annual expenses on seeds and film are 37,000 Grivnyas.
Vladimir requests a loan of 15,000 Grivnyas to construct an additional greenhouse and purchase quality polyethylene film to cover it. One of his plans for the future is to expand his farming business and purchase a machine that prepares compound animal feed. The machine will help Vladimir engage in farm animal production as well as keep his greenhouse business running efficiently.
