Nikolai is married with 3 children. He lives in the small town of Privetnoye and grows early spring vegetables, i.e. peppers, cabbage, onions, beets and eggplant. He started this agricultural venture 10 years ago because he could barely make ends meet and was forced to find ways to feed his family. Presently, Nikolai has already invested about 80,000 Grivnyas in his farming enterprise.

Nikolai is requesting a loan of 15,000 Grivnyas to purchase farming supplies for the new season. He is planning to invest 2,000 Grivnyas in purchase of fertilizers, 2,000 Grivnyas in polyethylene film, 2,000 Grivnyas in seeds, 3,000 Grivnyas in lubricants and 6,000 Grivnyas in purchase and installation of a drip irrigation unit. Nikolai is hoping to grow and harvest 50,000 peppers, 20,000 eggplants, 20,000 cabbage heads, 100,000 onions and about 5 tons of beets.
