Leonid is married with two grown children. He is a farmer from Kamenka. Leonid grows early spring vegetables, mostly tomatoes. He owns 17 big greenhouses and 2 separate ones for seedlings. Leonid has been in this farming business for 25 years. He has invested about 300,000 Grivnyas into it.
Leonid is seeking a loan of 17,000 Grivnyas to purchase fertilizers for his 17 greenhouses. He is hoping to increase the quality and amounts of harvested vegetables this farming season. Better fertilizers will ensure better and richer crops, thus guaranteeing stable income for Leonid and his family.
